Biofuel and Renewable Energy Industry


Biofuel refers to the specific type of fuel derived from natural sources such as plants, organic materials, and animal waste. The biofuel industry is gaining substantial attraction as alternative fuel for the petroleum-derived fuels to mitigate major concerns of global warming, raised due to the fossil fuels. Primary sources of biofuels include soybeans, corn, forestry, agricultural crops, as well as the waste from food services and the ag industry.

Biofuels are available in solid, liquid, or gaseous forms and are chiefly used in various end use applications such as generation of energy, transportation fuels, lubrication & greasing, cooking purposes, charging of electronics, and others. Some commercially used biofuels are biomethane, bioethanol, and biodiesel; biomethane is manufactured by using domestic and agricultural wastes, and bioethanol is produced from sugar beets, wheat, and algae. Biodiesels are manufactured using animal fats, algae lipids, and vegetable oils.

Unlike other renewable energy sources, biomass can be converted directly into biofuels to help meet transportation fuel needs, including the two most common types of biofuels in use today: ethanol and biodiesel, both of which represent the first generation of biofuel technology.
