Biofuels in Developing Countries

 Prof. Eric Tollens
Description: Second generation biofuels, which do not compete with food crops, are still years away from profitable production. First generation biofuels are controversial for two reasons: 1. they compete with food crops for resources and drive up the prices, 2. their questionable Kyoto (GHG) effect. World ethanol and biodiesel production forecast, 2000-2017, ethanol GHG emissions reduction compared to gasoline, breakeven for crude oil and biofuel production costs in selected countries are examined.
