Based on observations made during my scholarship travels, I believe the following areas of research need to be pursued if farmers are to gain benefits from a Biofuel Industry... The report reviews current international practice in the development of technical processes involved in the production of biofuels, the raw materials used in the course of production and the policies adopted by various developed and developing nations to support the industry... Other ways that the NOx emissions can be reduced in biodiesel are by recirculating the exhaust gas (this lowers the temperature of combustion), increase the cetane number of the fuel by using highly saturated feedstocks (this results in fuel igniting faster, reducing the amount of fuel in the self ignition phase and reducing the temperature)...
