Renewable Fuels

Renewable fuels are fuels that are made from agricultural products like corn, sugar cane, and soybeans that can be cultivated and grown in large quantities on farms and then converted into ethanol and bio diesel fuels for use in cars, buses, trucks, tractors, and other machinery.

The catch phrases in the media today for alternative energy are green fuels, yellow fuels, blue fuels and other names for products other than fossil fuels such as oil, gasoline, and coal.

It is being reported that farmers around the United States, as well as in other countries, have started cashing in on the bio fuel phenomenon by planting and cultivating more corn, sugar beets, wheat, and other agricultural commodities.

Other Fuels

Other renewable fuels include the tons of garbage that is collected around the country every day, which can be recycled and converted into useful products that can be used over and over again.

Although the technology for producing renewable fuels have been around for years, not until the recent spike in oil and gasoline prices has the government, as well as consumers, started taking a more proactive stance in demanding greater development and usage of these products.

Renewable fuels are the wave of the future. With the talk of the damage being done to the ozone and climate change that has been attributed to the use of fossil fuels, the political establishment is finally taking serious notice.

Environmental Protection Agency

The Environmental Protection Agency, along with the U.S. Congress and the President, are pushing for more renewable energy sources to meet the demand for cleaner air and better and a drastic cut in greenhouse emissions and other pollutants.

Many city, state, and county governments have already switched to vehicles that use alternative fuels.

Public modes of transportation like buses and trains are a prime example of how these agencies are using renewable fuel run vehicles.

Nearly all automobile manufacturers are experimenting with, and manufacturing vehicles, that use renewable fuels other than gasoline and more and more consumers are switching to hybrid cars and trucks.

The down side to all of this is that when commodities like corn and sugar cane starts to be used in large quantities for fuel, it may have a negative effect on the general food supply.

It has already been reported that the prices for corn and sugar cane are going up, which in turn, is driving up the prices of milk, beef, sugar, and other products that are used for food.
