Can anyone please tell me how to say 'bio-fuel ' in French ?
I am referring to fuel made nowadays from grains, etc.

    Interesting question: I heard on the radio two days ago that we actually have three ways of saying this:
    les biocarburants
    les agrocarburants
    les biofuel (pronounced 'biofioul')

    The difference is their connotation: the first is positive, the second neutral, and the third derogatory.
    Is there the same distinction in English?

    How interesting, these alternatives. Thank you. I am not aware of a similar choice in English, but then I have no expertise in this field.
