FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What are biofuels, why are they important to human being?

Bio fuels are a form of renewable energy produced from organic matter, they are basically fuels made from cellulose biomass, and they include ethanol, bio diesel and methanol. What makes them so special is the fact that they are clean sources of energy that everyone can grow themselves from renewable resources. They can be used to power machinery and electricity generators. They are important to human beings because they would somewhat aid in sustainability since they are clean thus less pollution in the air as well as the fact that they are relatively cheap to grow. The major disadvantage though is the fact that we do not have enough land world wide to grow enough of these fuels for at least every family, which means that they could never be our only source of energy other sources still have to be found, another problem is the fact that there is already little crop produce world wide so would people rather eat their produce or generate energy with it?

  • One problem is to grow enough green stuff to produce the fuel - this would cause a huge transformation of our landscapes. In turn this will have an impact on our bio-diversity.
