We have been using fossil fuels as our energy source for many, many years now, but they are starting to run out. We are consuming more fossil fuels than that are produced. Biofuels are a rather recent alternative to using fossil fuels. Biofuels are...
Biofuels: Mandating Harmful Consequences
Energy is the common currency of all living things; something all species need. While plants rely directly on the sun for energy, humans rely on an array of sources like wind, fossil-fuel, water, solar, and more recently biofuels. Of these biofuels, which...

In order to qualify for the tax credit, diesel fuel was added to the black liquor to create a mixture that contained a high percentage of biofuel (the black liquor) and a small percentage of fossil fuel (the diesel). Thus, a government incentive that was designed to encourage the production...
There is strong growth in the use of biofuels, allowing the transport sector to reduce its emissions of greenhouse gases when the full life cycle of the fuels is considered. To maximize their environmental benefit, however, it is important to produce biofuels in a way that minimizes negative impacts...
