Biocrude, starting to become more competitive. New methods are cutting production time and costs.Submitted by conalmc on Thu, 11/29/2012 - 09:09
New methods to make clean crude oil substitutes in minutes instead of millions of years are now being developed right here in the US
This is another step to making biofuels more competitive.
Biocrude can be made from any bio-mass. Plant material, bio waste, ALGAE (DOES NOT COMPETE WITH CORN OR OTHER FARM GROWN PRODUCTS and is 100% renewable), are some of the things that can be used to make biocrude. Biocrude can be refined into gasoline, diesel and even jet fuel. It will not require change to existing infrastructure or vehicles which will reduce overhead costs for businesses who want to start offering biofuels.
Diesel vehicle owners like myself who already have the equipment required to make biocude (or any veggie oil) into biodiesel, may be able to save HUGE and produce biodiesel for far lass then current diesel prices.
