Biofuel is produced from recent growth of plants, algae and microbes.

Biofuels can help replace fossil fuel usage in cars[1], trucks[2] and airplanes[3]. Burning of fossil fuels produces CO2 pollution which contributes to climate change. In contrast, plants and algae absorb CO2 as they grow to compensate for the CO2 that is released later when biofuels are burned in engines of flexible-fuel vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.

A New Biofuels Technology Blooms in Iowa

A New Biofuels Technology Blooms in Iowa - YouTube - US DOE 04may2010 "Cellulosic biofuels made from agricultural waste have caught the attention of many farmers and could be the next revolution in renewable biofuels production. This video shows how an innovative technology that converts waste products from the corn harvest into renewable biofuels will help the U.S. produce billions of gallons of cellulosic biofuels over the coming decade. It will also stimulate local economies and reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil."
