Next generation technologies is a generic term referring to new and often unproven technologies for bioenergy production. This term is often used broadly to refer both to conversion technologies as well as to novel feedstocks, such as algae. It is often used to refer to the range of thermochemical and biochemical conversion technologies for converting cellulosic feedstocks into liquid biofuels, such as ethanol. It is contrasted against well-established technologies such as producing ethanol from sugars and starches or biodiesel production through transesterification.
