Feasibility of Biomethane as an Automobile Fuel Fuels Growth

One of the key growth drivers of the global biomethane market is the green gas characteristic of biomethane. Biomethane is produced by the natural breakdown of organic material, which includes green waste, agricultural waste, food industry waste, household waste, and even industrial waste. The process of production of biomethane involves breaking down of organic matter in an anaerobic environment to produce biogas, which is further purified to produce biomethane. The resultant gas can be used as a vehicle fuel or can be injected into the main gas network to generate green energy.

The high production efficiency of biomethane production is another significant factor that adds to the advantage of the growth of biomethane market. This attribute makes it feasible for biomethane to be used as an alternative fuel for electricity production and for heat generation from combined heat and power.

Request Brochure of the Report:

Apart from being an environmentally friendly gas with high potential usage in the automobile sector, biomethane can be produced from the same infrastructure setup for natural gas production. This eliminates additional setup cost in biomethane production. This is expected to be a key factor that will boost the production of biomethane over other fossil fuels in various countries across the globe.

In addition, gasification of organic matter for the production of biomethane has environmental benefits as well. This is mainly because biomethane produced from organic matter prevents the discharge of a large amount of methane and other harmful gases into the atmosphere. The other advantage of production of biomethane is that it eliminates exposure of decaying organic matter into the atmosphere. Hence, methane and other harmful gases are prevented from being discharged into the atmosphere.

The production of biomethane, on the other hand, has a downside as well. Methane as a whole, if released in the atmosphere is about 20 times more detrimental to the environment than other greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide.

Global Report on Hydrogen Cyanamide Market

Hydrogen cyanamide is a plant growth regulator. Plant growth regulators (PGR) are chemicals that shape plant growth in many complex ways. They control activities such as differentiation and cell division, root and shoot growth, ripening and flowering. These are naturally occurring elements that regulate overall development and growth of plants, and are also called plant hormones. Some plant growth regulators are applied to plants to get a myriad of changes. These changes often make the plant better or more saleable by inhibiting growth responses such as germination, stomatal closure and abscission. Hydrogen cyanamide is majorly used as a growth regulator for grape. It has properties similar to disulfiram which is used to treat chronic alcoholism. Hydrogen cyanamide is called carbamide or carbodiimide. It is also classified as a restricted use pesticide. Hydrogen cyanamide offers several advantages. It includes earlier fruit harvest, increase in fruit size and increase in yield. In addition, it decreases the rate of over cropping and poor leafing. Hydrogen cyanamide has potential disadvantages which include phytotoxicity. Phytotoxicity reduces plant yields.

Organic farming has emerged as an important area in the agriculture sector on a global level in view of the growing demand for healthy and safe food. Organic farming also offers long-term sustainability and addresses concerns regarding environmental pollution associated with the indiscriminate use of agrochemicals. Hydrogen cyanamide are used for applications in soil, seed, or composting areas with the objective of increasing the number of such micro-organisms and accelerate microbial processes which boost the availability of nutrients that are subsequently assimilated by plants. Companies are focusing toward developing organic plant growth regulators to strengthen the organic offerings in crop nutrition. Organic plant growth regulators are premium products in the plant growth regulator category which have been mainly targeted at high value horticulture crops and other cash crops such as cotton and sugarcane. Hydrogen cyanamide causes adverse effects in the liver, thyroid, kidney, ovaries, and testes of laboratory animals. Hydrogen cyanamide has a modest toxicity in humans. Workplace exposure to hydrogen cyanamide sprays or exposure in people living in the vicinity of spraying have been reported as causing respiratory irritation, contact dermatitis, headache, and gastrointestinal symptoms of nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. These parameters can adversely affect the hydrogen cyanamide market growth. Additionally, though plant growth regulators provide nutrition and enhance the growth of plants, they are used in less quantity compared to other agrochemicals such as fertilizers. Different types of farming such as organic farming mainly use pesticides and fertilizers for applications in pest control, crop rotation, and green matter. However, plant growth regulators are strictly limited to organic farming due to various reasons including dormancy of seeds and their sustainability. Thus, the demand for hydrogen cyanamide may diminish in the near future.

Glufosinate-Ammonium Market Trends And Forecast 2014 – 2020

Glufosinate ammonium is produced from phosphinic acid and is a non-selective herbicide. It can be used effectively of all broad-leaved and grass weeds. Weeds deprive the crop plants of essential soil nutrients resulting in their stunted growth. Glufosinate ammonium is used globally on all edible & non-edible crops, fruits & berries and grasslands. Glufosinate ammonium is applied on both pre- and post emergent weeds. It acts by inhibiting the enzyme glutamine synthetase. It is applied as foliar spray and as soil treatment. Compared to other herbicides, its use is considered relatively safe on crop plants and it can be used in combination with other herbicides, owing to which, it is widely accepted as an herbicide in the major parts of the world.

The growth of the agrochemicals industry for farmlands has been driving the growth of glufosinate ammonium market. This trend is expected to continue within the forecast period. Additionally, glufosinate ammonium is used as a dessicant and a defoliant. The application of this chemical causes reduced glutamine and increased ammonia levels in plant tissues. This retards the photosynthesis process resulting in the death of the plant, within few days. However, glufosinate ammonium causes toxicity in animals and aquatic flora and fauna, this disadvantage of glufosinate ammonium is expected to hamper the growth of the market in the coming years. Bio based substitutes of glufosinate ammonium which are milder on the environment are expected to open new opportunities for this market in the coming years.

In order to combat the increasing problem of weed resistance to glyphosate- based products, in May 2013, Bayer CropScience announced the construction of glufosinate ammonium herbicide facility in the U.S. Bayer CropScience sells glufosinate ammonium under the brand name Liberty. The Liberty brand of glufosinate ammonium herbicide, acts against weeds which develop resistance to glyphosate, owing to this it is in high demand by agriculturists. The new facility construction in the U.S. is expected to more than double the company’s capacity for glufosinate ammonium production. Glufosinate ammonium acts against a wide variety of weeds such as crabgrass, pigweed, chickweed, quackgrass, lamb’s quarters, buckhorn plantain, shepherd’s purse and others. Glufosinate ammonium is sold under the brand names Liberty, Basta and Ignite. Its use as a defoliant causes the leaves of the weeds to fall off which retards the growth of harmful weeds.

Caprylic Acid Market – Global Industry Analysis, Trends And Forecast 2015 – 2023

Caprylic acid is one of the major medium chain triglycerides (MCT), chemically known as octanoic acid. It is a saturated fatty acid containing eight carbon atoms. Caprylic acid occurs naturally in the milk of different mammals. It is also found as one of the components of coconut and palm kernel oils. Caprylic acid has potential antimicrobial activity to inhibit the growth of a broad range of microbes such as bacteria, fungi, and algae. It acts as an active fungicide by preventing the infection of Candidafungi, commonly known as Candidacells. Caprylic acid also functions to activate ghrelin, a protein that stimulates hunger and increases appetite. It oxidizes the fat component in the body, enabling burning of excess calories, and aiding in weight loss.
