Chemistry- Biofuels


  • It is Renewable/ Sustainable
  • It is Carbon Neutral
  • More Plants can be grown
  • Does not use up crude oil / Non- Renewable resources
  • Crops use up carbon dioxide and produce oxygen when growing. E.g: Photosynthesis


  • Use of too much land
  • Land could be used for homes and for more crops
  • Bad seasons reduce availability
  • Carbon emissions due to transport and production if qualified


As you can see there are more advantages than disadvantages so i think that it would be an advantage to using bio-fuels instead of using normal fuels. The most important advantages are it is renewable, sustainable and it is carbon neutral. The most important disadvantages are that it uses up too much land, bad seasons can have an effect and the carbon emissions.
