Production of Biofuels

The energy that we obtain from biofuels originated from the sun. This solar energy was trapped through photosynthesis by the plants utilized as feedstocks (raw materials) for biofuel production, and amassed in the plants' cells.

Various plant materials can be wielded for production of biofuels:

Sugar crops (such as sugar cane or sugar beet), or starch (like corn or maize) can be fermented to yield ethanol, a liquid fuel mostly utilized for transportation.

Natural oils from plants like oil palm, soybean, or algae can be ignited directly in a diesel engine or a furnace, or blended with petroleum, to yield fuels such as biodiesel.

Wood and its byproducts can be transformed into liquid biofuels, such as methanol or ethanol, or into wood gas.

Wood can also be combusted as solid fuel, like the familiar firewood. Chipped waste biomass, such as the tops of trees dumped by logging operations, can be burned in uniquely designed furnaces.

Researchers are actively working to enhance biofuel production processes. Before bioenergy can make a bigger contribution to the energy economy, agricultural practices, feedstocks, and technologies that are logical in their use of land, water and fossil fuel must be started.
