Due to the increasing awareness of the negative impact of greenhouse gas emissions on the global environment, biofuels have recently come to the forefront of the search for renewable and sustainable energy sources. Many governments and political organizations have seen this alternative as a viable option. In this blog, we examine the negative economic, environmental, and social impacts of biofuel production. Our aim is to determine if biofuel technology is a feasible form of sustainable energy.
