In 1925, Henry Ford told The New York Times that ethyl alcohol is the fuel of the future. Ethanol is a biofuel that has caused a vivid debate over recent years. It is a cleaner burning fuel making it better for the environment than gasoline – but is has drawbacks as crops grown to produce ethanol destroy valuable food sources and raise corn prices. Companies such as BDI-BioEnergy International AG, a leading manufacturer of customized BioDiesel plants, were affected by this ‘food or fuel’ discussion. The Austrian company concentrates on turning waste into value and strictly focuses on raw materials such as trap grease and used oils.
