The role of biofuels in the future energy supply
Journal article, 2013

In recent years several different arguments have been raised against the use of biofuels and their role in our future energy supply. These arguments can be divided into issues related to costs, food versus fuel, and lack of sustainability. Here we address these three points and argue that biofuels represent an essential contribution to our future energy supply and more importantly will contribute to a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions.
