How is Biofuel Good for the Environment? October 10, 2018

How is Biofuel Good for the Environment?, West Haven, Connecticut

Whether you’re looking for clean fuel alternatives for vehicles or oil furnaces, biofuels sound pretty appealing. Ethanol and biodiesel are two fuels produced from different plants using various fermenting processes and they can be used in existing gasoline or diesel-burning engines. Below, Apple Oil, in West Haven, CT, shares some of the environmental benefits of biofuel.


BiofuelAll biofuels are made exclusively from organic materials. These are usually corn, wheat, sugar cane, and soy, but can include other natural substances as well. While there are different methods for creating the two types of biofuel, ethanol and biodiesel, the necessary ingredients can be easily grown as crops. Whereas fossil fuels will eventually run low or become inaccessible, these biofuels are highly sustainable. They can be quickly regrown and there is a constantly increasing source of fuel.


Biofuel can be safely used in any engines, but it also produces very little air pollution, since it’s so clean. Unlike fossil fuels which add massive amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere every day, biofuels use carbon dioxide that was only recently in the atmosphere before it was absorbed by the plants that were then used to make the fuel. This is a much healthier way to fuel vehicles and heaters and will keep our planet safe.

Cut the Need for Fossil Fuels

Our world is currently very dependent on fossil fuels. Instead of congesting up our atmosphere with the gasses produced from refining and burning this fuel, we can make an effort to use cleaner alternatives like biofuels. By simply replacing our diesel and gasoline with this safer fuel, we can stop producing the greenhouse emissions that are causing our planet serious harm.

You, too, can do your part for planet Earth by switching over to biofuels in your daily use.
