Environmental goals include reducing carbon dioxide emissions, which is one of the most important motives for the introduction of alternative types of automotive fuels. A couple of years ago, biofuels were in great demand not only because it represents an evolutionary change and can gradually replace traditional fossil fuels, but also because it seemed to be the surest eco-friendly solution. Of course, it is becoming clear that the aggressive introduction of biofuels at any cost can lead to many negative impacts on the environment. This article attempts to make some comparison between the environmental impact of biofuels, traditional fossil fuels, as well as some other types of alternative fuels or driving modes (hydrogen and battery electric vehicles).

Keywords: alternative, fossil fuels, carbon dioxide, biofuels, bio-products, hydrogen and battery electric vehicles
