Chile Economy-Wide, Provincial and Local Biofuels Resource Assessments First-Generation Biofuels Potential Ethanol: Chile produces corn, wheat, and sugar beet, all of which could be used as feedstock for ethanol production. However, given the limited land available in Chile and the current need to import significant quantities of food, second-generation biofuels, particularly from forestry resources, appear to be more promising. If the equivalent of 20% of Chile’s current starch and sugar crops production could be made available for biofuel production, for example through increase in crop yields over time, it would yield about 0.26 m 3 of ethanol or 0.12 Mt gasoline equivalent. This would be enough to replace 6% of Chile’s 2005 gasoline consumption and 1.2% of its 2005 crude oil imports. Biodiesel: The Ministry of Agriculture, Office of Agrarian Studies and Policies (ODEPA), completed a study in January 2007 looking at available feedstock for biodiesel production. The project estimated that about 44,500 m 3 (39.2 kt) of biodiesel could be produced from rapeseed and maravilla, and about 52,338 m 3 (46.1 kt) from animal fat. This is a nationwide study with no finer geography represented, and it is based on statistical analysis of reported information. If 20% of Chile’s current vegetable oil production, as well as all waste oils and fats, could be used for biofuels, it would yield about 54,000 tonnes of biodiesel per annum. This could replace 1.7% of Chile’s current diesel consumption or 0.5% of its crude oil imports. Second-Generation Biofuels Potential A study by the National Energy Commission (Comisión Nacional de Energía), Instituto Forestal (INFOR), and GTZ evaluated the primary mill residues at regional, provincial, and municipal levels in some cases for 2005 (CNE/INFOR/GTZ 2007). Data for this study was provided by INFOR, which collects it via surveys of sawmills. In addition to statistical analysis, the project uses GIS to map the residues available in each region, as shown in the example in Figure 12. The study concluded that about 5.5 million m 3 or 3.25 Mt of primary mill residues were available 36
