GLRPPR Sector Resource: Biofuels Factsheet

Title:
Biofuels Factsheet

Abstract:
Biofuels have the potential to reduce the energy and greenhouse gas emission intensities associated with transportation but can have other significant effects on society and the environment. Depending on demand, crop growing conditions, and technology, they may require significant increases in cropland and irrigation water use. Also, biofuels may have already affected world food prices.
