What Bio fuels are.
Bio fuels are produced from living organisms or from metabolic by-products (organic or food waste products). In order to be considered a bio fuel the fuel must contain over 80 percent renewable materials. It is originally derived from the photosynthesis process and can therefore often be referred to as a solar energy source. There are many pros and cons to using bio fuels as an energy source. This page contains articles that explore the many bio fuel technologies.
Benefits: Bio fuels, such as E85 ethanol and B20 biodiesel, are cleaner burning, homegrown, renewable fuels.
Vehicles running on bio fuels emit less air pollution, including cancer-causing compounds. The use of bio fuels also
helps reduce our dependence on petroleum and provides alternative markets for farm and forest products.
