We already know how to create fuels from certain types of biomass, but many other feedstocks can potentially be transformed in a similar manner. In order to identify new viable sources, we must develop more a sophisticated understanding of the technological processes that might be used to convert biomass to fuel, and assess the potential business cases for adopting certain sources that might have other economic uses, or compete with established cash crops. We can also explore the potential for tailor-made fuels for the transportation sector, developed from biological sources.
