Applications of Biofuel

While most people imagine the use of biofuel to replace gas powered vehicles, there are other dynamic uses for biofuel. As it is a diverse and economic friendly alternative, biofuel is sought to replace all forms of human energy. To contribute your restaurant's waste material to biodiesel energy use, it is important that you set up your Orange County Used Cooking Oil Collection Service. The following points are a few different ways biofuel can be used to promote a more sustainable society.
Transportation- This solution may come as no surprise. However, did you know that transportation contributes to 25% of energy demand and is responsible for 60 percent of all oil consumed? According to, this accounts for two-thirds of all energy burned to operate vehicles with little left for maintenance, manufacturing, infrastructure, and raw material harvesting. Attempting to find a replacement has been difficult because of transportation of the materials or pollution issues. However, experts say we are close to our peak of oil consumption. Because they are biodegradable and carbon neutral, biofuels are the perfect material to replace fossil fuels.
Power Generation- Of all the power generated by electricity in 2008, only 39 percent was used as energy, as the rest was lost as heat. Since electricity is the largest fuel user in the world, biofuel can provide a partial relief of this issue. The biofuels created from agricultural waste from landfills is less harmful to the environment than if the waste were to decompose on its own. Although this method alone cannot cover our world's entire demand, sustainable crop growth to pursue this action is in full effect. For example, the United Kingdom recently produced enough energy from landfills alone to supply 350,000 homes nationwide.
Heat- The major use of fossil fuels is heat, creating the biggest need for a sustainable option. While certain technologies have been developed, producing enough biofuel energy to replace fossil fuels remains a hurdle. However, the energy efficiency and the cost per unit of wood biofuel is way less expensive in comparison to natural gas.
At Optimal Biofuels, we offer complimentary used cooking oil collection services to promote the conversion to biofuel, rather than sell recycled oil back into the feed market. For more information about our products and services, contact us today at (877) 702-3835.
