Neto says that Petrobras is already conducting experiments with the goal of exploiting microalgae as a feedstock for biofuels. In the coming years, the Brazilian firm will prioritize the development of second-generation biofuels, including cellulosic ethanol produced from cane bagasse. Petrobras says that its target is to at least double its biofuel output within the next four years. Now that's a remarkable goal.We are using a number of approaches in our research, including the reuse of glycerin, rejuvenation of mature fields, and even cellulosic ethanol and aviation biofuel development.
