Are biofuels any better than fossil fuels?
100% Accepted from 1 experts
There seems to be a lot of hype around the production of biofuels (bioethanol and biodiesel primarily) as a good, 'green' alternative to fossil fuels for generating energy and powering cars etc. However, aren't they also hydrocarbons? And therefore wouldn't burning them also produce CO2? What makes them so 'green' in this regard?
