STUDY ON THE PRODUCTION AND USE OF BIOETHANOL IN THE EEC

Objective

COST/BENEFIT ANALYSIS OF PRODUCTION AND USE OF BIOETHANOL AS A GASOLINE ADDITIVE IN THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY. STUDY AND QUANTIFICATION OF THE IMPLICATIONS OF SUCH A PROGRAMME IN TERMS OF AGRICULTURE, TECHNICAL KNOWHOW, COST, ENERGY SUPPLIES, COMPETITION, EMPLOYMENT AND INDUSTRY.

EACH OF THE POINTS LISTED BELOW SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF THE COMMUNITY OF TWELVE FOR THE PERIOD 1986 TO 2000. DETAILED SOCIO-ECONOMIC EVALUATION FOR THE FOLLOWING COUNTRIES : BELGIUM, F.R. OF GERMANY, SPAIN, FRANCE, ITALY, NETHERLANDS, UNITED KINGDOM.

1. PROBLEMS OF OXYGENATED FUELS - LEAD-FREE PETROL

1.1. EVALUATION OF THE OVERALL MARKET (EXISTING AND POTENTIAL) FOR LEAD-FREE PETROL AND, CONSEQUENTLY, THE MARKET FOR OCTANE BOOSTERS.

1.2. EVALUATION OF PRODUCTION CAPACITIES AND COSTS, PRICES AND AVAILABILITIES OF OXYGENATED FUELS OF FOSSIL ORIGIN (EXISTING AND POTENTIAL) IN COMPETITION WITH BIOETHANOL (TBA, METHANOL, MTBE, SYNTHETIC ETHANOL)

1.3. ANALYSIS OF PRESENT LEVEL OF USE OF ALL OXYGENATED FUELS AS LEAD REPLACERS IN GASOLINE, TAKING ACCOUNT OF THEIR COST AND PHYSICO-CHEMICAL PROPERTIES.
CALCULATION OF INCREMENTAL OCTANE IMPROVEMENT COST.

1.4. ECONOMIC ANALYSIS OF PRODUCTION OF LEAD-FREE PETROL IN REFINERIES.
