Biofuels Stocks Performance of 2019

Updated Apr 18, 2019
Despite the long-running use of traditional fuels like petrol and diesel, the increasing awareness about their detrimental affects on the environment is leading to more and more alternatives being explored for other environment-friendly fuels sources. Renewable sources of energy, like sunlight and wind, have seen limited adoption though their use continues to increase. Biofuels are another form of fuel sources which derive or generate fuels from biological matter, but without the lengthy geological processes as observed in the case of fossil fuels like petrol or diesel. Such biofuels are produced through alternative biological processing of organic and biological matter through controlled processing.
For instance, methane gas, often called as biogas, is a standard fuel that is generated by processing animal manure and other vegetation material. Other forms of biofuels inclue ethanol that emerges as a by-product of corn and sugarcane farming, and finds increasing use in mixing it with petrol for increasing the overall fuel efficiency and reducing the harmful impacts of petrol to a certain extent. Biodiesel is another popular biofuel which is generated from decaying fungal matter, like algae.
Investors must note that though many companies generate biofuels, then are primarily dealing in other business sectors and activities and biofuels emerge only as a by-product of their primary business operations. It may be difficult to find a pure-play biofuel company, and only a handful exists.
