In view of the forecasted shortages and increasing prices of fossil fuels, climate change, and the need for new income and employment opportunities in rural areas, biofuels have taken center stage in policy debates. The report, Biofuels for Transportation: Global Potential and Implications for Sustainable Agriculture and Energy in the 21st Century, aims at presenting the opportunities, but also the limits, of global biofuel production and use in terms of energy, agricultural, environmental, and rural development aspects, as well as in economic terms. The report also examines the impact of globally expanded biofuel production on Germany’s biofuel sector. Finally, the study presents detailed recommendations for action for decision-makers in politics, industry, and elsewhere.
