Biofuels (ENRGY C122) Wabash Valley College Effective Term 201060 A biofuel is defined as any solid, liquid, or gaseous fuel produced from organic (once-living) matter. The term biofuel covers a wide range of products and is used globally; the most common use for biofuels is in automotive transport (i.e. E10 fuel). In addition, biodiesel blends up to B20 (20% biodiesel) are common in the trucking, agricultural, and construction fields. As engines are certified to run on B100, it is expected that demand for this fuel product will grow. Biofuel can be produced from any carbon source that can be replenished rapidly, e.g. plants. Many different plants and plant-derived materials are used for the manufacturing of biofuels. Potential customers for an alternative/biofuels program cross many industries including those in energy (ethanol, biodiesel, electricity distribution, solar, and wind), food processing, chemical processing, biological processing, and associated service industries. Potential employment settings include ethanol plants, refineries, commodity manufacturing plants, and energy processing and distribution plants. Specific classes of job categories include typical manufacturing plant positions such as engineering, technicians, process operators, process technicians, maintenance technicians, and science technicians. This certificate is a specialized program that requires strong skills with a foundation in math, science, communications, computing, and management.
