External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just modified 9 external links on Biofuel. Please take a moment to review my edit. If you have any questions, or need the bot to ignore the links, or the page altogether, please visit this simple FaQ for additional information. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, you may follow the instructions on the template below to fix any issues with the URLs.

As of February 2018, "External links modified" talk page sections are no longer generated or monitored by InternetArchiveBot. No special action is required regarding these talk page notices, other than regular verification using the archive tool instructions below. Editors have permission to delete these "External links modified" talk page sections if they want to de-clutter talk pages, but see the RfC before doing mass systematic removals. This message is updated dynamically through the template {{sourcecheck}} (last update: 15 July 2018).

  • If you have discovered URLs which were erroneously considered dead by the bot, you can report them with this tool.
  • If you found an error with any archives or the URLs themselves, you can fix them with this tool.

Cheers.—InternetArchiveBot (Report bug) 18:19, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

Today's need of the world.[edit]

Really a great article. This is today's need of the world and an efficient alternative for fossil fuels.--Sdixit2017 (talk) 01:35, 4 December 2017 (UTC)sdixit2017--Sdixit2017 (talk)

Biofuel gasoline[edit]

In 2013 UK researchers developed a genetically modified strain of E. coli, which could transform glucose into biofuel gasoline that does not need to be blended.[1] Later in 2013 UCLA researchers engineered a new metabolic pathway to bypass glycolysis and increase the rate of conversion of sugars into biofuel,[2] while KAIST researchers developed a strain capable of producing short-chain alkanes, free fatty acids, fatty esters and fatty alcohols through the fatty acyl (acyl carrier protein (ACP)) to fatty acid to fatty acyl-CoA pathway in vivo.[3] It is believed that in the future it will be possible to "tweak" the genes to make gasoline from straw or animal manure.

--> I moved this section from the main page to here since this might simply be biobutanol, which is already covered in the article. I also find no such term ("biofuel gasoline") using google. Genetics4good (talk) 09:58, 5 August 2018 (UTC)

Forests and Carbon Sequestration[edit]

Scientific research (20th century) shows that carbon dioxide emissions from all forms of surface transport are converted in a few weeks by forests, farms and oceans into biomass. The capacity of the forests, farms and oceans are more than sufficient for this. This implies that a greater emphasis on sustainable forestry is very relevant for climate protection and sustainable, energy-efficient transport. RenewAllEnergy (talk) 02:59, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

Indeed, it has been estimated through scientific research that the capacity of forests, farms and oceans for carbon sequestration is more than sufficient to convert all anthropogenic and industrial carbon dioxide emissions into biomass. RenewAllEnergy (talk) 02:59, 15 October 2019 (UTC)
