1 Matthew Mayo, Yusef Alojeiri, Taehoon Kim

2 Biofuels are a source of renewable energy derived from organic matter or Biomass. Examples Wood Food waste Animal waste Soybeans, corn, switchgrass Algae

3 Pros Carbon neutral fuel Renewable Cons Less energy dense than fossil fuels Currently require oil and coal to refine the biofuels Requires a lot of land and water to produce Food vs. Fuel debate

4 Energy density is the amount of energy in Joules per kilogram or m^3 of fuel FuelMJ/kgCO2 (kg/kg) Crude Oil Natural Gas53.63 Coal Wood Animal Dung10-15

5 Testing the caloric output of different biomaterials. A calorimeter is a device that measures the heat output of a sample of fuel.
