The objective of Nigeria’s biofuel production programme is to establish a thriving ethanol fuel industry by utilising agricultural products. With vast areas of arable land and a suitable climate for the cultivation of various crops, Nigeria shows good potential for biofuel production. Accordingly, a number of incentives have been introduced to stimulate Nigeria’s biofuel industry.
But we also need to compare these options for other issues like water consumption, air pollution, and economic costs
“Green energy is the only practical solution for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and assuring energy security but there are major hurdles to overcome before biofuels can compete with fossil fuels on a global scale.”
