[11'005 kB :: downloaded 922 times]
This study provides a comprehensive assessment of the potential for biofuels production in Mozambique and assesses the potential competitiveness of biofuels production in comparison to the cost of imported petroleum-based transportation fuels in the domestic market as well as in overseas markets where both conventional and renewable fuels are consumed. The study also estimates the potential macroeconomic benefits from the development of biofuels production in the Country, while at the same time identifying the potential risks from this activity. In addition, the study reviews the current market for biofuels in other countries and reports on the experience of several countries with national biofuels programs. Based on this review, the study provides some general recommendations for Mozambican policymakers to enhance the conditions in the Country for the development of a biofuels sector in a direction that will maximize the economic, social and environmental benefits for Mozambique and minimize the potentially damaging impacts resulting from development in this sector.
