Now-a-days, utilization of fuel is increasing day by day and sources are gradually decreasing. By using these crude fuels, emission of chlorofluorocarbons and products which are hazardous to environment are also increasing. Because of the decrease in sources of energy, the cost of energy fuels are increasing. Thus, it is necessary to look for alternative sources which can minimize the above mentioned problems. Fuels from renewable sources have drawn a considerable attention in recent years as these sources are environmental friendly. Bio mass can be considered as carbon dioxide neutral because using bio mass means recycling mobile carbon instead of liberating fixed carbon from combustion of fossil fuels. For example, bio fuels like bio-oil, ethanol, methanol, biodiesel can be produced from renewable sources and they have gained popularity due to their sustainability, low contributions to the carbon cycle, and low production of greenhouse gases. Specifically the oxygen content of bio-oils is a limitation for utilisation as transport fuel since the high oxygen content of bio-oils causes high viscosity, poor thermal and chemical stability, corrosivity and immiscibility with hydrocarbon fuels.
