- Bioethanol which is derived from a wide variety of agricultural produce, including forest residue, or energy crops such as Miscanthus, sugar cane, sugar beet, and grain.
- Biodiesel is a renewable diesel fuel that can be derived from algae, vegetable oils (soy beans, sunflowers, peanuts, rapeseed, palm oil, jatropha etc.) and even used as restaurant cooking oil.View
