Benefits of Biofuel and a Sustainable Environment


Biofuels are natural based fuels made from renewable sources in plants which produce lower carbon emissions and create a more sustainable environment than use of traditional fossil fuels. 

Biofuels not only contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions but equally present economic benefits by increasing jobs and creating a thriving industry.

Rather than being dug from the ground where availability is often limited, biofuels can be produced in mass and on demand anywhere in the world.

Whilst biofuels have been produced and used for many years, the past decade or so has seen an acceleration in modern biofuels following the commission of incentivised schemes by the governing bodies such as the European Commission which benefit those parties opting to use renewable energy, to help achieve carbon emission reduction goals.

Members of the public and non-industry experts are also becoming increasingly more aware of the benefit of biofuels in everyday life with the introduction of petrol specification changes such as E10 (read more about this here).

It’s understood that whilst biofuels are not the answer to prevent, or stop global warming, increased use and uptake over fossil fuels can slow down the impact that CO2 emissions are having on the environment globally. 

However, it’s important to understand the difference between safe and effective renewable biofuel and palm oil biodiesel, which can also be used as an alternative to fossil fuels. 

Palm and soy oil-based biodiesel burned in vehicles across the world have been proven to actually produce more CO2 than burning traditional diesel with the added disadvantage of mass deforestation to source the palm oil. Click here for more information on biodiesel.

At Fuelcare we believe biofuels remain susceptible to microbial growth and existing strategies for testing & treating remain useful.
