Biofuels, Biodiesel, and Ethanol

Overview Industry Overview:

Due to increasing awareness regarding the importance of renewable energy and fuels – and escalating fuel prices – the market for biofuels, biodiesel, and ethanol has skyrocketed. These alternative fuels have a tremendous potential to decrease carbon emissions and moderate oil prices. This growing market extends beyond just the automobile industry, as more train lines and aircraft companies embrace the possibilities. Even Disneyland powers its steam trains with biodiesel created from recycled french fry cooking oil!

There is still much work to be done in helping the world to fully embrace these renewable energy sources. New and exciting research opportunities abound to ensure the long-term feasibility of biofuel, biodiesel, and ethanol production. This includes such fields as molecular breeding to significantly improve yields of new hybrids, and algae biofuel, which would not compete with food production for precious farmland and fresh water resources.
