Biofuel is essentially a liquid or gas fuel made from biomass.

There are many types of biofuels including:

  • agricultural waste
  • ethanol blended into motor gasoline
  • fish oils
  • landfill gases
  • municipal solid waste
  • other waste
  • peat
  • railroad ties
  • sludge waste
  • spent sulfite liquor
  • straw
  • tall oil
  • tires
  • waste alcohol
  • wood, and wood liquors/sludge/waste

Since biofuel is a form of alternative energy, it will reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Hence, biofuels are a great way to reduce your carbon footprint and thus help stop climate change.
