Bio is renewable!

Renewable means that fuel consumption rate and raw material production rate are equal.
It results in a null CO2 net balance (CO2 produced by combustion is fixed by photosynthesis at the same rate in the raw material).


Biomass for Second generation Bioethanol are mainly from wastes
(forestal management wastes, agricultural wastes, wood industry wastes)
