Liquid biofuels


Liquid biofuels are derived from biological material and can be produced from a variety of carbon sources. Common liquid biofuels include oils from various oilseeds, such as palm oil, palm stearin, rape seed oil, sunflower oil and jatropha oil. Liquid biofuels can also be of non vegetable origin, i.e. oils or fats from fish, poultry and animals.
