  • Energy 101 | Biofuels

    Biomass is an organic renewable energy source that includes materials such as agriculture and forest residues, energy crops, and algae. Scientists and engineers at the U.S. Department of Energy and its national laboratories are finding new, more efficient ways to convert biomass into biofuels that can take the place of conventional fuels like gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel. This edition of Energy 101 shows how biomass is broken down and refined into sustainable biofuels via biochemical and thermochemical processes.

    Earth 2050 - The Future of Energy - Sustainable fuels from biofuels to artificial photosynthesis By the year 2050 the world populations will have grown to 9 billion, we will have vast Megacities, and energy demand will double. The number of cars will grow from 1 billion to 2 billion and our demand for resources will soar. We need new sources of energy and in particular new liquid fuels for transport. Whilst electric cars are on the rise, battery technology falls well short for applications in trucks and airplanes. These technolgies are around today with Brazil already producing 40% of its on transport liquid fuel by making ethanol from sugar cane. But this solution will not meet world demand due to competition for farming land between food and energy crops. To meet world demand 2nd ...

    My name is Dr. Caye Drapcho and I am an associate professor of Biosystems Engineering at Clemson University. I'm conducting research on different ways that we can produce sustainable biofuels to help our nation get off of it's fossil fuel addiction. This line of research was brought to us by the Peach Council in South Carolina. They were very forward thinking in their thought that they are wasting about ten percent of their fresh fruit harvest every year simply because it's not perfect. There are still a lot of sugars available in those waste, cull peaches that we can ferment into biofuel. Our project looks at those waste peaches and converts them into hydrogen gas, which can then be a sustainable biofuel for the future. A lot of times we want to strike another oil well, we want to have...

    As America takes steps to improve our energy security, home-grown fuel sources are more important that ever. One of the fuel sources of the future is algae, small aquatic organisms that convert sunlight into energy and store it in the form of oil. Scientists and engineers at the Energy Department and its national laboratories are researching the best strains of algae and developing the most efficient farming practices. This edition of Energy 101 shows how oil is extracted from algae and refined into sustainable biofuels. For more information on biofuels visit http://www.eere.energy.gov.

First-generation biofuels are already reducing emissions by a minimum of 35%, while simultaneously paving the way for 2nd and 3rd generation biofuels. The use of biofuels reduces Europe’s fossil fuel imports by more than 11 billion Euros a year. The production of biofuels also creates protein-rich feed for European livestock. This reduces protein imports by more than 4.5 billion Euros a year. European biofuels comply with the strictest sustainability criteria in the world. Crops for biofuels are not grown on deforested land, peatlands or in areas with a high biodiversity value. The land used to grow the crops accounts for less than 2% of the agricultural area in Europe. Thanks to sustainable growing practices, biofuels stay true to their objective: to contribute to cleaner transportation in Europe.

My name is Dr. Caye Drapcho and I am an associate professor of Biosystems Engineering at Clemson University. I'm conducting research on different ways that we can produce sustainable biofuels to help our nation get off of it's fossil fuel addiction. This line of research was brought to us by the Peach Council in South Carolina. They were very forward thinking in their thought that they are wasting about ten percent of their fresh fruit harvest every year simply because it's not perfect. There are still a lot of sugars available in those waste, cull peaches that we can ferment into biofuel. Our project looks at those waste peaches and converts them into hydrogen gas, which can then be a sustainable biofuel for the future. A lot of times we want to strike another oil well, we want to have free energy gushing out of the ground and that's really not what our future energy needs are going to be met by; it's going to be multiple, diffuse energy sources that will meet that need. For South Carolina and for an individual peach producer, the impact is going to be substantial. We have estimated for one peach grower it would be about a ten thousand dollar per year savings. If we multiply that by any harvest of any fresh fruit or vegetable, it could have a nationwide impact that would help us move toward energy sustainability.

As America takes steps to improve our energy security, home-grown fuel sources are more important that ever. One of the fuel sources of the future is algae, small aquatic organisms that convert sunlight into energy and store it in the form of oil. Scientists and engineers at the Energy Department and its national laboratories are researching the best strains of algae and developing the most efficient farming practices. This edition of Energy 101 shows how oil is extracted from algae and refined into sustainable biofuels. For more information on biofuels visit http://www.eere.energy.gov.
