Increasing demand for biofuels to reduce greenhouse emission and boost the renewable energy source
Babassu oil is used to produce biodiesel with high percentage of saturated fatty acids, primarily composed of lauric (51.8%) and myristic (22.2%) fatty acids that makes the biodiesel stable towards oxidation and resulting in good low temperature properties. Biofuels are increasingly being used across various end-use industries owing to the rising awareness about increasing levels of greenhouse emission and use of renewable energy sources, and cost benefit among others. Governments are investing in research and development of biofuel to tap the untapped market opportunities. For instance,in 2019, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) selected 35 projects to provide funding of US$ 73 Mn for R&D in field of bioenergy. The primary aim of DOE in funding the R&D projects is to produce biofuels that are affordable and compatible with the existing infrastructure and vehicles for various transportation modes. Additionally, loans and grants are provided to the companies in the biofuels market space to encourage the development of biofuels. The increasing pool of investments in the development of biofuels is expected to fuel the demand for babassu oil during the forecast period.
