The Production and Use of Liquid Biofuel in the Transportation SectorAuthor(s): Tina Parks
For use in land, air, and marine transport vehicles that have internal combustion (IC) engines that burn diesel, gasoline, or kerosene, liquid biofuels are considered an alternative fuel. It is predicted that by 2030, it will provide about 10% of the energy needed for transportation, up from 5% in 2018. Liquid biofuel is used in a variety of applications, including ships and aviation, two of the most rapidly growing segments of the transportation industry. Liquid biofuels produced with advanced technology are used to reduce pollution emissions in the atmosphere when compared to fossil fuel-derived engines. Advanced liquid biofuels are the only option for reducing CO2 and have a high specific energy, making them ideal for use in jet fuel.
