Biofuels Are Part of Vibrant Energy Marketplace

by  Rebecca Maitland  (Houston Chronicle)  … Biofuels’ primary benefits are in energy security, economic growth and environmental performance.

“Biofuels reduce dependence on imported fuels. This strengthens our energy security while also creating jobs and improving local economies,” Dascal (Rob Dascal, vice president, sales and marketing, Sabine Biofuels, a second-generation biodiesel company owned jointly by Endicott and HollyFrontier Corp.) said.

Additionally, biofuel use diversifies transportation energy supplies, making the country less dependent on oil and less vulnerable to volatile global oil markets.

“Biofuels are good for the environment because they are made from renewable resources. For example, according to the EPA, biodiesel reduces greenhouse gas emissions. It also has lower tailpipe emissions. It is less toxic than table salt, and biodegrades as fast as sugar,” Dascal said.

There is also a burgeoning opportunity to apply these biofuels further upstream into the green chemicals industry.

There are many exciting opportunities in biofuels, both in research to find new and more plentiful waste feedstock materials and how to convert them to biofuels, with a growing need for engineers to find these materials. There are also opportunities in developing and operating new production facilities.  READ MORE
