Sustaining the environment require ways of creating an environment that can keep going indefinitely into the future by using renewable energy resources, agriculture, and forestry practices.
Biofuel is clean energy that lasts for an extended period of time. The use of biofuel is an efficient and nonpolluting energy that has solved both ecological and economic problems by reducing the dependence on imported energy sources by developing counties. Hence, it is a perfect and preferred substitute for Fossil fuel.
The raw materials for producing biofuel are from Agricultural waste such as maize, rice, plantain, sorghum; Food processing waste, Industrial waste, kitchen and organic waste.
Biofuel production and use contribute to several sectors waving from energy to environment to agriculture and society.
Biofuel plays a vital role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions by producing heat, light and electricity. Biofuel also reduces industrial wastes that cause water pollution and public health problems.
It also helps improve health and sanitation by providing clean energy and a smokeless kitchen that is directly associated with children and women’s health. Biofuel also reduces flies, worm eggs, pathogens and the workload of getting firewood for cooking from the forest.
Organic kitchen wastes are processed into high-quality fertilizers that are affordable to farmers to increase food production. Other benefits include reducing deforestation, which protects the soil, water, air and woody vegetation. Apart from the afore mentioned reason for the uses of biofuel, it is also great substitute for fertilizer which provides additional source of income.
