Biofuels News

If you are interested in the renewable energy sector then you need to stay current with the latest news, views and developments. The Wiser biofuels news email can help you do that. It delivers the most important news on the topic to your inbox every day so that you have the right information. The world uses more energy every year. As a result, the topics of energy production and the impact of that production on the environment are debated daily. For many people, biofuels are part of the solution. This is energy that is produced using plant or animal materials, so biofuels are a source of renewable energy. Examples include ethanol which is made from crops like corn, and biodiesel which is made from vegetable oils and liquid animal fats. They have become more popular and widely used, particularly during times of high oil prices. But they are not without their problems or critics, not least because of the cost of production.
