ABSTRACT
The article cites that the electric power industry in the U.S. are beginning to use biofuels to meet the renewable energy standards (RES) requirements through 2020. According to the author, switching to next-generation biofuel from fossil fuels would reduce emissions of carbon dioxide, sulfur oxides and nitrogen oxides. First-generation biofuels have sources that come from starch, sugar, vegetable oil or animal fats using conventional technology while second-generation biofuels are derived from non-food crops such as switchgrass and jatropha.
