I struggle with this as I look at part of my farm as being an oil refinery. So far down the refinery route I produce gas as part of my torrefication of wood. I produce oil from oil seed rape. I combine the torrefied wood and OSR oil with water to produce an alternative to diesel. The ongoing project is an alternative to aviation fuel (kerosene) from Jerusalem Artichokes.
