This paper is the first in a white paper series that will provide a detailed outlook into the variety of Biofuels, their respective processes and the hazards associated with their production and use. This paper provides a review of the history of biofuels and bioreactors and discusses present and future developments for biofuels, as well as some of the hazards that are associated with the production and use of biofuels.

Biofuels: A Brief History

Biofuels are fuels that can be derived from biomass feedstocks such as plants, algae, food waste, or animal waste. These feedstocks create a vast opportunity for future energy production, as it is estimated that the energy stored annually in terrestrial plants is 3-4 times greater than the current global energy demand [1]. Since these feedstocks can be replenished, biofuels are also a renewable energy source. In recent years there has been a push towards renewable energy sources such as biofuels because of concerns about climate change.
