Biofuel is fuel derived from living matter called biomass (usually plant matter). Examples of biofuels include but are not limited to biodiesel, ethanol, and vegetable oil. Biofuels can be categorized into three different types based on the source of biomass. Since biofuels are obtained from current plant growth, they are considered a renewable source of energy. Ethanol is the most common biofuel in North America, as most gasoline contains up to 10% ethanol.
Using biofuels in an engine still produces carbon dioxide. However, since they're derived from recent biomass which took in CO2 as it was growing, the CO2 released in combustion is the "same" as they took in. This makes biofuels far closer to carbon neutral (no net increase in atmospheric carbon) than fossil fuels.
As a biofuel producer, you can tap into massive amounts of funding, both debt and equity. Technological advancements necessary for the sector are costly, but also potentially game-changing in the pursuit of energy independence. Capital and technology combined will create efficiencies in the use of biomass as fuel, and those efficiencies will change biofuel dreams into biofuel realities.
