The report concludes with in-depth company profiles, offering valuable insights into various players in the biofuel industry, providing a comprehensive understanding of the evolving landscape. 

In the past, the U.S. used to make more biodiesel than renewable diesel, but that changed in 2021 because renewable diesel production suddenly increased. Back in 2012, people used 900 million gallons of biodiesel and 74 million gallons of renewable diesel. However, by 2022, renewable diesel use went up to 1,700 million gallons, which is 107 million gallons more than biodiesel. A big reason for this increase is a rule in California called the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS). This rule encourages the use of low-carbon renewable fuels like renewable diesel and SAF to make transportation less polluting. Even though cellulosic ethanol is made from plants we don't eat, it doesn't make up a big part of all the biofuels we produce. Not manynew ideas or improvements are happening in the research and development (R&D) area for making cellulosic ethanol biofuel. Looking ahead, in the next five years, South America and Asia Pacific are expected to grow the most compared to Europe, following the lead of the U.S. market.
