Biofuels: A Really Slow Growth?

Biofuels is a general term for biodegradable fuels derived from organic sources as constrasted to petroleum based fuels aimed at conserving our environment for our generation and the ones to come. Only very few countries are committed to environmental preservation and protection. The rest simply play to the gallery.
Why the seemingly slow growth in the use of biofuels especially in the developing world?

The slow growth in the use of biofuels in the developing world are primarily linked to cost and availability of equipment suited for biofuel consumption, biofuel product, transportation of biofuels, and energy distribution infrastructure.

Agree; and oil and gas are now abundant and cheap in the USA - Dr. David E. 19 months ago
Real answer, when facility available no body want to take care of biofuels how to be produced. - Er. Jangyadutta 19 months ago
biofuels are renewable. - Er. Jangyadutta 19 months ago
Second generation biofuels are fuels manufactured from various types of biomass.Biomass is a wide-ranging term meaning any source of organic carbon that is renewed rapidly as part of the carbon cycle.Biomass is derived from plant materials, but can also include animal materials - Dr. David E. 19 months ago
Good information. - Er. Jangyadutta 19 months ago
Awareness required for biofuels sector growth. - Er. Jangyadutta 19 months ago

The issue is that biofuel crops are being grown instead of food crops or rain forest. They may have advantages over oil-based fuels in terms of emissions but the total life cycle must be taken into account.

Agree but fossil fuels rock - Dr. David E. 19 months ago
Actually for fiofuels production is more expensive so awareness required. - Er. Jangyadutta 19 months ago
Biofuels otherwise called as biodiesel is created in refineries that use existing oil in crops such as soybeans. These kinds of vegetable oils are then treated with alcohol to convert them to biodiesel. - Er. Jangyadutta 19 months ago
OK - Dr. David E. 19 months ago

A biofuel is a fuel that is produced through contemporary biological processes, such as agriculture and anaerobic digestion, rather than a fuel produced by geological processes such as those involved in the formation of fossil fuels, like coal and petroleum, from prehistoric biological matter.

Biofuels generally called bio-alcohol which is ethanol created by engineers from yeast and bacteria to break down starch from corn and other plants. - Er. Jangyadutta 19 months ago

Biofuels produced from plants or other include wheat, corn, soybean and sugarcane, energy companies mix them with gasoline. Unlike oil, coal or natural gas, biofuels are renewable.

A bio fuel is a fuel that is produced through contemporary biological processes, such as agriculture and anaerobic digestion, rather than a fuel produced by geological processes such as those involved in the formation of fossil fuels, such as coal and petroleum, from prehistoric biological matter. If the source bio matter can regrow quickly, the resulting fuel is said to be a form of renewable energy. Bio fuels can be derived directly from plants or indirectly from agricultural, commercial, domestic, and/or industrial wastes.
