Power Supply Manufacturers Going Green

Not All Biofuels Are Green

Not all biofuels are environmentally friendly. In fact,it has been discovered that many biofuels are not green at all. A recent study has shown the developmental growth of biofuels over the course of time. This study concluded that there were only a fraction of biofuels that are ecologically sound.

It goes without saying that this is a time of ecological awareness and that environmental consciousness plays a huge role in the average day to day activity of many citizens. The demand for more biofuels has increased, and so has more green and alternative forms of energy. More power supply manufacturers and energy plants have been implementing new ways for harvesting biofuels.

Moreover, ecologists who specialize in balancing the ecosystem have been constantly adapting to new environmental and societal changes to make way for new methods of development for biofuels. Most biofuels originate from the soil and discovering the sustainability of these products from an ecological perspective is what has caused so much discrepancy in recent times. Further, determining if these agricultural origins for biofuels play an absolutely positive role in the development of the making of biofuels remains to be seen.

Figuring out if biofuels are eco-friendly comes from realizing and understanding the source material. In other words, tracing the production chains from growth to biofuel is what sheds light into how these resources can be environmentally friendly or not. But, where the difficulty lies is in the fact that despite reducing greenhouse gasses, these agricultural sources of biofuels cause many other harmful environmental pollutants. For instance, when a lake is over fertilized by too much PH or other minerals it becomes polluted and this is a direct response to the types of agricultural harvesting for biofuels that we have seen recently.

Since the problem has been detected, what do we do about it? How can the modes of production change into an entirely positive and green one for harvesting biofuels? Although new methods are being created, there are some known factors of what to do and what to avoid in the process of developing biofuel technology. One example is not clearing or removing any land matter such as bushes, fields, or trees. When deforestation occurs this causes a disruption to the eco-balance and will throw off the ecology of the plant life in the area. Further, greenhouse balance is entirely distorted, which prevents healthy and eco-friendly maintenance of that area for growing energy plants.

Another example is the consistency of land use for the manufacturing of biofuels and whether it should be maintained and not or changed frequently over time. This too disrupts the ecosystem and throws off the balance of that particular area. The more disrupted the area is the larger the overall ecological balance will be effected. The ultimate goal is not to disrupt the natural order and cycle of the ecosystem. Another example is using materials that are considered land waste, such as timber, which is fine, except in the instance where it does take away from the natural cycle of that region’s ecosystem. In other words, as a general rule of thumb, the soil of the area should not be disrupted or removed.

Biofuel production can be a successfully green form of cultivation that reduces greenhouses gasses and simultaneously does not cause other types of pollution in the atmosphere as well. However, this remains to be seen. There are many agriculturalists and ecological economists that are working on new ways for discovering how to combine both the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions with biofuels and reducing the causal elements of other forms of pollution which are a direct result of the source material of biofuel production. This has been a prime motivator for many scientists and agriculturalists who have been trying to discover new methods for combining green ways for cultivating biofuels.

On the up side, Biofuels can create jobs in this tough economy. Hundreds of thousands of new jobs would be created each year if the proper methods of cultivating biofuels using today’s ecological and green technology were set into motion. Not only would this be ideal for the environment and ecosystem at large, but it would also create more jobs in the work place which would further reduce the unemployment rate which has risen above eight percent recently. This is a positive start in the direction of boosting the ecosystem and the economy. As a result greenhouses gas emissions are reduced, alongside other forms of pollution, more jobs would be created, producing a strong beginning to what could become a new ecological movement in our times. This movement would leverage merging green initiatives with a prospering economy. However, this would also reduce our dependency on non-renewable resources such as gas, and turn our attention to clean and renewable forms of energy such as biofuels. Much work has to be done, but there are very significant positive long-term payoff’s to this approach.

Having environment and ecosystem balance is key. The prevailing strategy now is to develop methods of source material for biofuels that reduce greenhouse gasses while at the same time not creating other forms of pollution. The goal is to search for a positive method that yields positive results across the board and not just in one area for the cultivation of biofuels. The solutions are ready at hand as well as the process to developing one hundred percent eco-friendly and environmentally conscious biofuels. The future depends on such findings and new methods of going green.
