Biofuels - The Energy of the Future!

Biofuels are a sustainable energy source made from organic materials or recycled oils converted into liquid fuels. The most common types of biofuels are ethanol; an alcohol made from plant biomass, and biodiesel; a combination of alcohol and oil or fat. An exciting new resource for biofuels is algae, which is well-suited to growing here in the Southwest.

In SFCC's new Biofuels program, you can learn to make biodiesel, ethanol and algae oil and go to work in the growing biofuels industry.
