  • Crunch year for US biofuels

    US biofuel policies are set to collide this year – with each other and with reality – Bloomberg New Energy Finance finds in new “What to Watch for” biofuels white paper. New York, 25 February 2013 – Policies that govern the use of US corn-based ethanol – one which calls for a minimum amount of consumption, and another which limits how much can go into ...

  • An economical method of biofuel production

    Fuels made from plant materials could play a role in the move to more sustainable energy production. A new costing study suggests that large-scale biomass-to-liquid (BTL) plants, could manufacture such synthetic fuels ('biosynfuel') at a cost of about 1 Euro per kg in central Europe. Under the EU Climate Action and Renewable Energy package1, Member States need to source a minimum of 10 per cent ...

  • Biofuels bottom of the heap in impact study

    An ambitious attempt to rank future energy sources according to myriad repercussions of their use has found biofuels to be the most undesirable option. Use of ethanol caused the most climate damage, air pollution, damage to land and wildlife, and chemical waste, according to the analysis. The study, which claims to be "the first comparative evaluation of proposed large-scale energy solutions to ...

  • Biofuels could hasten climate change

    A new study finds that it will take more than 75 years for the carbon emissions saved through the use of biofuels to compensate for the carbon lost when biofuel plantations are established on forestlands. If the original habitat was peatland, carbon balance would take more than 600 years. The oil palm, increasingly ...

  • Science article on GHG accounting misses the mark on biofuels

    Biofuels produced from biomass feedstocks (i.e. plant matter) are, by definition, carbon neutral because carbon dioxide tailpipe emissions from the combustion of biofuels are readily absorbed by growing plants. As such, the tailpipe emissions resulting from the use of a gallon of ethanol produced from corn grown on U.S. farmland are negated by the growing of the corn itself. Yet, in a newly ...

  • Crop biofuels `create carbon debt` new study shows

    Two studies have shown that changes in land use to produce crop-based biofuels can actually result in more greenhouse-gas emissions than burning fossil fuels. The studies, both published in Science on the 8 February, estimate the impact of converting forests and grasslands into cropland for the production of biofuels. Both conclude that the resulting carbon emissions, released through ...

  • Climate change and health costs of air emissions from biofuels and gasoline

    The report’s erroneous finding that modern corn ethanol actually increases greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions relative to gasoline is completely predicated on the baseless assumption that additional corn demand for increased ethanol production will cause conversion of large amounts of grassland enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP). Thus, like several other highly controversial studies ...
