In recent years the uses of renewable chemicals, in particular bioethanol as a component of motor fuels, considerably expand in the world. The capacities for production of fuel ethanol at the level of 160 thousand tons per year and standard documentation for its use as biofuels are created in Ukraine. The domestic catalytic technologies for processing bioethanol into other high-octane oxygenates have been developed. Expansion of production and use of bioethanol and its derivatives are contingent first of all on the state support.
Keywords: renewable sources of energy, bioethanol, catalysis, motor fuels.
