Are biofuels really environmentally friendly?

Just came across an interesting article on the Guardian website: "Scrap biofuels targets and focus on improved public transport" http://www.guardian.co.uk/envi ronment/2010/feb/10/biofuels-t ravel-and-transport

It seems that biofuels are not as "green" as it may seem at first glance, and they might not be the right solution to the problem. What do you think of all this? Should we just abandon biofuels and focus on other solutions?

@ Alja Sulčič :

See Bio fuel is renewable source of energy, We can not say it will run only for 2 tot 3 years,

Moreover hazardous gases like SO4 & SO3 which comes out by Petrol which is not a problem for Bio Fuel.

Only Bio Diesel is not a bio fuel, Few alcohols are also comes under Bio Fuel which can be used as a substitute for Petrol and all....

So i think Bio Fuel is a all time best....We should also focus on other source also...

Its my opinion, May be right or wrong....Sorry & Thanks

Great question:-)
Knowing that are produced from living organisms I think it is enviromentally friendly.
There are many pros and cons to using biofuels as an energy source.

New biofuels have the potential to be clean-burning, carbon-neutral and renewable, so I think it is enviromentally friendly.

yes, i agree with all of you.. now we can say biofuels are great idea, but what about 2050th year, how many people and how many cars will be on this planet????
More or less CO2?? Sun,water and wind are future 'fuels',or something not discovered yet..:P

I just attended to a lecture on Chemistry and Phisycs of Combustion and have just noticed that biofuels might not be as "good" as they are showed. Sincerely, I did not understand at all what the Professor was saying but... I got something about the type of engine used i.e. for its optimal use, the length of the research for more accurate data; then, if any conclusion is delivered and people change the parameters, again it is not expected to have same results, eg. if changing from sugar care biofuel to corn biofuel have different impacts. :S

Ethanol is also a type of bio fuel ...
but it is not directly used , it is added in gasoline or diesel by some proportions to increase vehicle's fuel efficiency.
and also it decreases CO2 emissions in atmosphere.
So it is not fully bio fuel, but using this causes less damage to environment.

IT is renewable source of energy, Which can be produced in abundant by algae , Waste vegetable oil & many more.
If we can harness it properly & able to commercialize it.
It ll not only bring a revolution Rather a new evolution in the world.
Since it can be harnessed from wastes & other things ; So we can say that yes they are environmental friendly as compared to various other non-renewable sources/fuels.
