BioTFuel: Driving with plant-based fuels

Around the world, demand for biofuels is growing.


In this process, the biomass is first dried and then ground. In a second step the material is processed in a special reactor to produce synthesis gas, a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen. As in the first step, the energy for this comes from the biomass itself. Finally, the cleaned synthesis gas is converted into biodiesel or biokerosene.

Around the world, demand for biofuels is growing. Experts predict that second-generation biofuels will meet an increasing share of this demand.

Successes:

  • Biofuels reduce CO2 emissions by up to 90 percent
