One of the most exciting advancements in biofuel is tobacco. With almost half of the dry weight of a seed being oil, it is incredibally rich. However the plant is around 1.4 – 4% oil. With genetic engineering this can be raised to around 8%. One of the attractive things about tobacco for fuel is that it does not use a crop grown for food. This is still in the production stages though.
Currently, algae seems to be the front-runner in bio fuel which outperforms soy 400 times over and palm measured in oil yielded per acre. It can be grown in the desert, man-made tanks, and waste treatment facilities. Also, many countries are offering incentives for the research and use of this technology by local industries.
