As an alternative solution to polluting energy resources such as fossil fuels, new-generation biofuels seem to take the winning prize. The new generation of biofuels allows the use of leftover crop material, unlike in the past when whole crops were used for the sole purpose of producing those. Also, after processing and transportation, the green gas print left on the environment by this type of fuels wasn’t a major improvement as compared to traditional fuels.
But, according to Business Wire, Luis Goyzueta, CEO of a pure biofuel manufacturing company, seems to have found the solution. How could these new-generation biofuels make everybody’s lives easier? By helping us reduce the green gas footprint we leave on the environment without taking food from the poor, a topic largely debated over the years. But more information, below.
As compared to the previous generation of biofuels, the new generation allows only using the leftover material for production. This makes farming and fuel development to have a healthy symbiosis, where the farmer is paid for the material they provide to the processing company and the processing company doesn’t abuse the farmer’s resources. This led in the past to an increase in prices across the food chain. Today, biofuel manufacturers plan to only use those crop parts that cannot be used in any positive way: woody leftovers, agricultural waste, algae, etc..
As processing and manufacturing new-generation biofuels become more sustainable and friendly on the environment and the poor social classes, says Mr. Goyzueta, more of us will have an easy access to this type of fuels. They might be used at a large scale across a variety of industries which fuel our lives: from the aircraft and transportation industry to the energy-manufacturing industry, and more.
But before biofuels are adopted at a large scale in the energy industry, manufacturing companies have to look closely at how people feel about such changes. However, a recent report suggested that biofuels might change the situation for the good in those areas where pollution leads to high poverty rates due to soil deterioration. Biofuels might offer a real viable and flexible alternative and might raise the living standard of so many in similar conditions.
The ways in which a family will live a better life once biofuels are widely adopted across the energy sector would be numerous.
These are only some of the amazing ways in which humanity might benefit from a wider adoption of new-generation biofuels, without lowering the living standard of low-income classes.
