However, modern biofuels production creates new problems, in particular: – – – – competition between the use of biomass for food or fuel production, increased food prices, limited land availability for cultivation of energy crops, environmental impacts.

For spruce wood, the yield of CEL was approximately 29%. Guerra et al. (2006) compared data obtained for different wood species using MWL, CEL, and EMAL methods. The EMAL protocol offered gravimetric lignin yields 2–5 times greater than those of the corresponding MWL and CEL. 6% higher than those of their corresponding CELs, depending upon the wood species from which they were isolated. The yields and purities of EMAL, MWL, and CEL from hardwood were greater than those obtained for the examined softwoods.

This savings requirement will rise to 50% in 2017. In 2018, it will rise again to 60% but only for new production plants. All life cycle emissions are taken into account when calculating greenhouse gas savings. This includes emissions from cultivation, processing, and transport. 1. , 2010). 1. , 2013.
