Biofuel is made from biomass, which is biological material from living or once living organisms. This includes traditional “fossil fuels” such as gasoline. However, more readily available biological materials can be used to generate power.

The largest source of biomass energy is wood. Other options include corn, hemp and a wide variety of different species of trees. These sources can be grown and then harvested, making them a sustainable source of fuel. But, burning biomass for energy does have setbacks. Some biomass sources have the capacity to release toxic fumes when burned, contributing to air pollution in the environment.
