The cities of Ames, Madison and Washington DC have utilised Optimus Technologies for their snowplows which are using 100% biodiesel (B100) as the decarbonisation solution for their heavy-duty fleets.
A biofuel company working with NASA has announced plans to open a £9 million (€10.3 million) County Derry plant on a landfill site.
This series of lessons encompass the topics of bioenergy, biofuels, carbon impacts and life-cycle analysis. The lessons are designed for middle and high school students and have options for advanced students in each lesson. Additionally, the lessons meet Next Generation Science Standards. All these lessons can be adapted to meet the learning needs of grades 4-12.
Despite being a renewable energy source, the use of biofuel is controversial, as growing few, highly productive crops for fuel can lead to biodiversity loss in the cropping systems where biomass is produced. A cropping system refers to the crops, their sequence, and the management practices on a given field.
