BioEnergy Systems LLC (BES) has significant experience in designing and evaluating various biofuels production systems, including ethanol, biodiesel, biocrude, and other liquid fuel products. 

Biofuels projects include feedstocks and processing components, other aspects include marketing, economic, financial, logistical, and environmental considerations. 


Second-generation biofuels production systems – using cellulosic energy crops – are estimated to have much higher yields – than first-generation biofuels (e.g., corn-to-ethanol, soybeans-to-biodiesel).

Important public sector support programs have been created (at both Federal and state levels) to support the establishment and production of cellulosic biofuels.
