Biofuel Plants

Biofuel plants refer to facilities or installations where organic materials, such as crops, agricultural residues, or waste, are converted into biofuels. These plants typically employ various processes, such as fermentation, distillation, or chemical reactions, to extract, refine, and convert the organic matter into usable fuels. Biofuels derived from these plants can be used as an alternative to fossil fuels in various applications like transportation, heating, or power generation, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions and dependence on non-renewable energy sources.
