    When one uses the term “Biofuels”, they should be specific about the primary source of the fuel. For instance, using corn, even if it is not for consumption by humans will require more energy to produce and promote additional environmental damage due to erosion, fertilizer application, etc. Crops like switchgrass and possibly hemp do not require such attention, can produce multiple crops per year and grow on existing fallow land. Other derivatives from digesters are another form of fuel by wisely utilizing the gad produced from waste products.
