A tax on greenhouse gases, often called a carbon tax, is a market-based policy instrument that can be used to accomplish a cost-effective reduction in emissions. As a result, the world is looking for green fuels source for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The green fuels from biomass are attractive due to biomass is a chemical elements that can be converted into fuels comparable to petroleum fuels. Moreover it has shown no effect on the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere (Carbon Zero). In Thailand, biomass is a potential raw material for domestic production. Conversion of biomass to obtain domestic energy will reduce imports and sustain the country’s energy security. Therefore, in this paper, we focus on providing the information and knowledge of carbon taxes and biomass conversion technologies used as biofuels, in addition, the potential for the development of biofuels in Thailand.
