We at Vaishali Biofuels Pvt. Ltd. considering the urgent need for new and sustainable technologies continue to deliver benefits, this includes the positive impact on the environment and an improved economy. Biofuel can help to improve energy security can help to improve energy balance through domestic energy crops. And contributing significant of biofuels towards the progress of renewable sources of energy and the reduction of greenhouse gases. The primary goal to biodiesel is to provide energy security and benefit the local communities.
One of the main reasons why we need biofuel is that it can be used in today’s engines, infrastructures and vehicles without the need to make changes. Biofuel can be stored, burned and pumped the same way as petroleum diesel fuel. It can also be used in blended or pure forms safely.
BENEFITS OF BIOFUELS
Factors like the finite petroleum reserves and constantly rising demands for energy by the industrialized as well as the highly populated countries (on their Way to industrialization) like India and china have made it absolutely necessary to look into alternate and efficient methods to replace these fuels in future. Also, concerns like steep rise in fossil fuel prices in the recent years, increasing concerns about climate change like global warming, insecurity and unrest among governments due to their depleting natural reserves are just a few factors that define an urgent need for a sustainable path towards renewable fuel technology development. Among the various types of alternative fuels considered (liquid fuels from coal and/or biomass with and without carbon capture and storage (CCS)), biofuels derived from lignocellulosic biomass offer the most clean and sustainable alternative to fossil fuels essentially because of their cost competitiveness as opposed to the current expensive methods of ethanol production from sugarcane and corn.
BUILDS ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
Increasing the investment in biofuels will result in a boost of growth in the economy. This means that there will be more jobs and new sources of income for farmers in the industry. Developing countries will benefit from the economic growth in the demand for world energy. Biodiesel is also claimed to be the most successful alternative fuel to complete the rigorous emissions and health study under EPA’s Clean Air Act. Biofuel will reduce emissions of carcinogenic compounds as high as 85%.
RECYCLABLE AND BIODEGRADABLE
Biofuel is proven to be less toxic that diesel as its attributes makes it less likely to harm the environment and cost less damage. Biofuel is found to be less toxic that table salt as it is a natural, non-toxic vegetable oil. Biofuel is proven to be safer to handle than petroleum fuel due to its low volatility. The high amount of energy does make it a danger of accidental ignition as the fuel will create enough vapor
CATEGORIES OF BIOFUELS
First generation biofuels –
Fuels made from sugar, starch, vegetable oil, or animal fats using conventional technology.
Second generation biofuels –
Fuels produced from non-food crops like cellulosic biofuels and waste biomass (stalks of wheat and corn, and wood).
Third generation biofuels –
Fuels produced from micro-organisms like algae.
