Biofuels are liquid fuels or blending components produced from biomass. Among them fuel alcohol, biodiesel and renewable diesel stand out.
 
Alcohol fuel is denatured anhydrous ethanol obtained from biomass with a water content below 1%, mixed with gasoline compatible in any proportion to produce an oxygenated fuel.
 
Biodiesel is a fuel that serves as a diesel substitute and is typically obtained from palm oil, soybean, canola, or other vegetable oils; animal fats and recycled fats. It consists of mono-alkyl esters of fatty acids from vegetable oils or animal fats.
 
The renewable diesel is chemically identical to conventional diesel fossil fuel (long chain hydrocarbons), but is produced from biomass.
