Biofuels

Biofuel Industry


Also known as alternative fuels, biofuels are a type of fuel whose energy is derived from biological carbon fixation (i.e. photosynthesis).  The biofuel industry has gained popularity due to oil price fluctuations, alternative energy searches and the avoidance of emissions from fossil fuels.  Examples of biofuels include biodiesel, green diesel, vegetable oil, bio ethers, biogas, syngas and solid biofuels (sawdust, dried manure, agricultural waste).  With a sealless design, a T-Mag Mag Drive Pump can help pump during the distillation, neutralization or transesterfication stages of the biofuel process.
