Denmark reduces it support to bioethanol – the way forward is DME and methanol
Swedish news media ”Ny Teknik” reports that Danish researchers found that it was better to support production of DME and methanol compared to second generation generation bioethanol. ”-Drop the focus on second-generation ethanol. The route goes through gasification to methanol and DME, it is a very effective way of getting energy from forest residues and straw, the researchers found. The government listened and immediately drew back all the support of ethanol production”.
