Besides, Thailand has been facing with the problem of fallen price of agriculture products due to the flooded products in the market. Consequently, Thai argriculture farmers become poorer, and the Nation’s economy becomes unstable. Biodiesel and ethanol project was first initiated in 1974, due to the energy crisis at that time, and urgent need for other sources of oil alternatives. With great interests and encouragements of the Thai King on renewable energy development, the research on biofuel was launched and that was one of solutions to helping the poor farmers too.      
Energy Crisis has continuously been a major problem to all countries of the World, including Thailand. This crisis is due to the rapid expansion of economics and industries, resulting in a rise in demand for energy supply. Inevitably, Thailand is one of the rapid growing countries in this region, in terms of the Industries, Automotives as well as Transportations, as a result Thailand required higher demand of energy, while still importing 90% of crude oil from foreign countries.
