Reduction of GHG Emissions and Attainment of Energy Security through Sustainable Production of Biofuels: Is it a Viable Option? A Review of Experinces

Published By: CESS on eSS | Published Date: October, 01 , 2014

The National Policy on Biofuels sets an indicative target of 20per cent blending of biofuels by 2017 to tackle the twin problem of energy security and climate change. Although biofuels seem to be the most suitable solution, the perceived competition for land and the risk of displacing production of human and animal food pose substantial risk. The objective of this working paper is to review the sustainability of large scale biofuel projects from the existing literature. The review projects a mixed picture about the economic, environmental and social viability of biofuels.
