Biofuels are fuels derived from renewable biological materials such as sugars, starches, fibrous and woody plants, algae, seed oils, and animal fats. The most popular types are biofuels that are produced are ethanol and biodiesel.
Biofuels are produced at a number of locations across Kentucky because we have a good supply of farm-grown feedstock and natural resources, as well as markets for fuel use.
Kentucky retailers, businesses and consumers are interested in utilizing local, renewable fuels that can be made from sources we provide within the commonwealth. Improved technologies on the farm, at fuel production facilities, and in engines are at work to make biofuels more sustainable than ever before.
Mammoth Cave National Park has been using ethanol and biodiesel for years, and is the first national park in the country to be powered by 100% alternative fuel. Learn more
