Biodiesel production is a winner not a loser (facts and data not opinions)

"According to a study written by Drs. Van Dyne and Raymer for the Tennessee Valley Authority, the average US farm consumes fuel at the rate of 82 litres per hectare (8.75 US gallons per acre) of land to produce one crop. However, average crops of rapeseed produce oil at an average rate of 1,029 L/ha (110 US gal/acre), and high-yield rapeseed fields produce about 1,356 L/ha (145 US gal/acre). The ratio of input to output in these cases is roughly 1:12.5 and 1:16.5."

More studies from the U.K this time

say Net energy from rapeseed produced biodiesel is 25157 MJ/ha

Give me facts and data next time not opinons out of your arse...

What is Biodiesel's Energy Balance?

Independent third-party, peer-reviewed studies show biodiesel has the highest energy balance of ANY fuel. A prominent USDA/DOE study shows for every unit of fossil fuel used to make biodiesel, 3.2 units of energy are gained in energy output. That's a 320% increase and includes soybean planting, harvesting, fuel production and transportation.

Finally

What good is a clean fuel if it is too expensive to produce it... You logic seems flawed dude. Engineering has taught me that successful engineering is all about compromises... Seems like your emissions point is irrelevant...
