ABSTRACT
The article discusses the production of biobutanol by a team of engineers at BP PLC and E.I. DuPont de Nemours & Co., which can fulfill the requirement for a gasoline replacement. According to an industry source, by the start of 2012, the first production of Butamax will be under way. Technical advantages of biobutanol over ethanol include a higher energy content which will give close to the same miles per gram (mpg) vehicle performance as gasoline.
