Biofuels are renewable because they’re made from plants or animals, which grow. But sometimes biofuels are produced in ways that are not sustainable. Hungry people sometimes pay the cost. Can food security and biofuels go hand in hand?
Today Léna Durocher-Granger at CABI (‘Improving lives by solving problems in agriculture and the environment’) shows us a summary of thinking about food security and biofuels. I like the way Ms Durocher-Granger explains the ideas and suggests solutions.
[Edit] Here’s something I said a few months ago about funding for developing ‘advanced’ biofuels fed on algae.
