What is the biofuel production process

Biofuel production is the process in which bio fuels or fossil fuel alternatives are created. This recent innovation has effectively spurred on a completely new technology, which may eliminate or significantly reduce our dependence on the finite supplies of traditional petroleum based derivatives of fossil fuels.

The essence of biofuel production is that it is primarily a sustainable form of fuel production. Research has gone into depths to discover the best ways to develop a fuel or gas, which has almost limitless supply. As a result, there now exists real alternatives to fossil fuels and biofuel production is no longer just fiction but a reality.

Existing research into biofuel production has been focused on technology that converts crops directly into biofuels, normally consuming the whole crop in the process.

Recent research has proven that whilst it may be effective, long term this is an environmentally unfriendly process due to the sheer production quantities needed to remove fossil fuel dependencies. This would obviously mean other crops suffer because of biofuel production requirements.

This has led to further research into the science of enzymes, which can be used to naturally break down left over crops and thus effectively recycle existing waste material.

This has already proved effective in landfill sites operated by the UK , which traps methane gas which is created due to the breakdown of household waste.
