Climate change and global warming are driving the development of and demand for biofuel. The difference between biofuel and fossil fuel is that biofuel is created from recently dead biological material and fossil fuel comes from long-dead biological material. While the rise in popularity of biofuel is significant, perhaps what is more substantial is the fact that biofuels offer the possibility of producing energy without a net increase of carbon into the atmosphere. Unlike fossil fuels that return carbon, which has been stored beneath the surface of the Earth for millions of years, to the air, plants used to produce biofuel remove CO2 from the atmosphere.
