Biofuels in Chemical Engineering
A bio fuel is a hydrocarbon fuel that is produced from organic matter in a short period of time. A distinction is made between primary and secondary bio fuels. In the case of primary bio fuels, such as fuel wood, wood chips and pellets, organic materials are used in an unprocessed form. Secondary bio fuels result from processing of biomass and include liquid bio fuels such as ethanol and bio diesel. Bio fuels can also be made through chemical reactions, carried out in a laboratory or industrial setting, that use organic matter (called biomass) to make fuel. The only real requirement for a bio fuel production is that the starting material must be CO2 that was fixed by a living organism and the final fuel product must be produced quickly and not over millions of years. Bio fuels may also be derived from forestry, agricultural or fishery products or municipal wastes, as well as from agro-industry, food industry and food service by-products and wastes.
