Alternative fuels – specifically ethanol, biodiesel, and natural gas – find growth potential in the 10 strongest markets in Asia – China, India, Japan, South Korea, Australia, Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, and Malaysia. However, opportunities vary in each country based on end market, government mandates, and long-term feedstock potential. This reports reveal individual opportunities in ethanol, biodiesel, and natural gas vehicles (NGVs) development in each country. Key findings include: 1) Non-food ethanol and diesel from waste feedstock are emerging in China and India with strong governmental support, while China pushes harder on NGVs due to air pollution issues; 2) Near-term opportunities exist to export both feedstock and advanced fuels to Japan and Korea, though each country is exploring novel feedstocks, such as MSW and seaweed; 3) Long-term opportunities in Australian biofuels and NGVs are based on feedstock production; 4) Wavering government support paints an uncertain future in Philippines and Vietnam; 5) The feedstock-driven potential of NGVs in Indonesia is catching up to Thailand.
