The biofuel industry offers an array of careers related to Bioenergy, including but not limited to agrofuels, microbiology, engineering, biochemistry, and more. Biofuels (also known as feedstock) generate from living or dead organisms, including matter extracted from plants, vegetable oils, grains, and animal-based oils to create fuel. Here is a list of the most sought biofuels and Bioenergy jobs:
Scientists in the biofuel and Bioenergy industries use their academic ability to discover innovative ways to develop fuel from the feedstock.
Biochemists and Biophysicists
Both biophysicists and biochemists examine the physical and chemical foundations and biological processes of all living things. Their research includes various methods to convert fuel from the feedstock.
Chemists will research matter, its structure, properties, compositions, and reactions to its processes. They study chemical methods that facilitate biofuels’ efficient production; chemists also compose the most delicate blends of compounds for high-quality fuel produced at a practical cost.
Microbiologists study microorganisms in all capacities and discover alternative methods of cultivating algae as a feedstock. Microbiologists analyze their characteristic structure, growth, and development whether they are studying algae, bacteria, or plant cells.
Soil and Plant Scientists
Through research, soil and plant scientists control soil, crops, and agricultural products to transform agricultural products into fuel. In addition, plant scientists raise crops to enhance the production of feedstock.
Through scientific and technological exploration, scientific engineers develop solutions to convert biofuel from the feedstock.
These scientists are agriculture and horticulture authorities that determine which plants work best to produce fuel. They also decide when and chose where feedstock is best cultivated for the most effective fuel.
Chemical engineers solve biofuel issues by applying physics, chemistry, and biology to develop new plant machinery and processes to convert raw materials into fuel.
These engineers solve environmental problems by applying the principles of soil science, biology, and chemistry. Their goal is to find solutions to waste and water systems and limit emissions from processing fuel.
These engineers find efficient methods, including dictating which workers, materials, and data best produce a particular feedstock or chemical process.
John Kaweske of Colorado Springs is a biodiesel fuel and technology expert. As President of Bio Clean Energy, S.A., he draws from 20 years of professional experience to offer valuable insight into the industry. When he isn’t working on clean energy efforts, he’s spending time with his family and practicing daily meditation.
