Other than corn and algae what types of biofuels are there?

    Good question, Lenastone.  As you already mentioned, corn and algae are popular items that are used for creating biofuels.  Along with corn, wheat, sugar beets, sugar cane, potatoes, or any other sugar or starchy item can be used to make bioalcohols like ethanol.  Algae is used to make green diesel fuel, along with canola, jatropha and salicornia.  Biodiesels use things like animal fats, vegetable oils, soy beans, mustard, sunflower, and many others.  There are also biogases that we can harness from decomposing organic material.  There are so many types of biofuels, it is pretty overwhelming!

    Hope this helps!
