What are Second Generation Biofuels?
https://www.danforthcenter.org/news-media/roots-shoots-blog/blog-item/What-are-Second-Generation-Biofuels
Second generation fuels are made from inedible parts of the plant and thus do not compete with the food supply. Currently, most of the ethanol in the U.S. comes from corn seed and is produced in a process that is very similar to brewing beer from ...
What are Second Generation Biofuels?, Second generation fuels are made from inedible parts, between food supply and ethanol production. Second generation biofuels are produced using plant cell walls rather than starchy grains used to produce ethanol or other biofuels. The most promising biofuels include a number of grass species such as Miscanthus and switchgrass that produce large, , second-generation biofuels represent a sustainable energy resource that complements our existing corn
(Biofuels Digest) The Origin of Sex

Algae researchers think they may have discovered a trigger that establishes gender, and sexual reproduction.
(Biofuels Digest) The Origin of Sex, We humans experience asexual cellular division, or mitosis, though we rarely write songs or poetry in celebration of it. Our earliest life experience is dominated by that process, as two cells become four, and four become eight. As multicellular organisms, however — and at the point of conception — our story is dominated by the phenomenon of sex. We, be wondering — what the heck has any of this to do with biofuels, in a practical sense? “Just
