Biofuel - Not So Fast

Russian scientists believe that biofuel wouldnt become part of our ordinary life before 2080.
      
      Biofuel, a hydrocarbon fuel, which has nothing to do with oil, is produced from renewable biomass sugar cane, maize, rapeseed, or girasol. Biofuel can be liquid (ethanol, methanol and biodiesel) and gaseous (biogas). Biofuel was predicted to replace gasoline by 2030, however, global recession changed the plans.
      
      Fuel, made of corn and hay has lower quality than that made of oil. Moreover, biofuel requires changes in engines and is much more expensive than petrol analogues. To the moment, bioenergetics has more questions than answers. No technology for utilizing insoluble organic wastes, coming from biofuel production, lignin, for example, exists. Science still has a long way to go before (if ever) we can replace gasoline with bioethanol.
