The transport sector’s energy consumption is forecasted to increase worldwide in the future. Due to this raising tendency, environment will be loaded and polluted throughout pollution coming from the transport sector. Biofuels are judged as questionable whether they can be useful regarding their usage. In the following study, two rarely investigated parameters like oxygen consumption and carbon-dioxide emission will be analysed during the theoretical combustion process of fuels. In case of these parameters, biofuels can have advantages compared to those of fossil fuels. The reduction potential can be higher if the calculation is related in addition to potentials formats during the life of (fuel) plants as well.
