By common consent, diesel oil (used to power the compression ignition engines, so dominant in agriculture) is a nonrenewable resource. Attempts to find or identify a diesel fuel substitute that could be used in conventional diesel engines have made some progress. In particular, the use of oils from renewable oilseeds has enjoyed some limited success in countries such as Austria, where generous tax remission is allowable on a fuel that is otherwise uneconomic.
However, although the renewable alcohols can be produced from agricultural byproducts (cereal straw, sugarcane bagasse) the economics are even more unfavorable given the complex manufacturing process that includes fermentation and distillation.
