Rapeseed makes the largest feedstock for biodiesel production, followed by soybean. Ethanol production is largely produced from sugarcane, with corn also having considerable input. 5 Biofuel production in 2012: (a) biodiesel production, (b) ethanol production. (From Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute, 2011. 2 Second Generation of Biofuels The second generation of biofuels consists of the utilisation of lignocellulosic biomass for the production of liquid biofuels. The lignocellulosic biomass is non-edible and can be sourced from a range of industrial and agricultural technologies as a by-product or waste.
