Greenhouse gas emissions that drive global warming increased by 32% from 1990 through 2016. The transportation sector generated the majority of that carbon output. That means primarily on-road vehicles. This makes over-the-road transportation a focal point of reducing carbon emissions, driving the destructive effects of climate change.

There are two options for reducing GHG. One is to reduce the amount of fuel used. The second is to develop alternative fuels that generate less greenhouse gas emissions. Experts say the first option is not viable. Electric vehicles are not a solution because most electricity is still created using fossil fuels.

That’s…


The biofuel industry offers an array of careers related to Bioenergy, including but not limited to agrofuels, microbiology, engineering, biochemistry, and more.

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to wreak havoc on the economy, most oil refiners have discovered new alternative ways to tackle the challenge of decreasing demand for gasoline to stay afloat during these uncertain times. One such practice is producing biofuels derived from animal fat and cooking oil. Refiners opt for biofuel that comes with the much-needed government credits to supplement inconsistent revenues as the pandemic continues its upsurge. Gasoline demand also continues to plummet further as government restrictions to contain Covid-19 intensifies.

New Innovation

S&P Global Patts states that refining companies turned to biofuels to avert bankruptcy and continue…

Interest in the developments of such products as ethanol and biodiesel blossomed after the oil crisis of the 1970s. During the tenure of President Jimmy Carter, the United States began to feel vulnerable to the whims of OPEC and other major fossil fuel producers.

The attraction of biofuels is that it could enable America to become energy independent and not subject to the whims of often hostile foreign powers.
