How do biofuels work?

A biofuel is any fuel that is derived from biomass. Biomass is plant or animal material used for energy production, for example wood, sugar cane, straw or food waste. Using biomass as a feedstock to produce fuel (instead of fossil gas, coal or oil), no additional CO2 emissions are released into the atmosphere when the fuel is burnt in an engine.

What are advanced biofuels?

Advanced biofuels, or second-generation biofuels, are fuels that can be manufactured from various types of non-food biomass. Biomass in this context means plant materials and animal waste used especially as a source of fuel.

What is mass-balancing?

According to this principle, the total effect of a material is calculated simply by adding and subtracting it as a whole. As an example: To improve the quality of the environment, it does not matter where in the atmosphere you substitute a material with a better alternative, as the net result for the atmosphere is the same. 

What are the environmental benefits of biofuels over fossil fuel mix?

Compared to their fossil equivalent, biofuels used by GoodShipping reduce CO2-emissions with up to 90% (well-to-propeller). 

Do I need to make engine adjusments using biofuels?
