Wood gas is less well known than its other biofuel counterparts, but as the new kid in town, its potential has to be truly tapped. By burning down things we already have available, like woodchips and sawdust, we're able to produce an abundance of wood gas and reduce our reliance on petroleum.
Methanol has progressed a long way since the days of its production by the destructive distillation of wood. It's now sustainably produced alongside other biofuels, such as ethanol. It represents a more affordable, available way for individuals, organizations, and countries to reduce carbon.
Ethanol is a type of biodiesel that you're probably familiar with - it's the same alcohol found in spirits! However, bioethanol is a renewable resource that you can create using agricultural feedstock, like sugar cane and potatoes. With recent advances, though, it's also produce bioethanol using algae!
