Last Updated on November 3, 2021 by admin


Public policy supports biofuels for their benefits within the energy, transport and agricultural sector of environmental reasons. Biofuels are assumed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Thereby, the carbon dioxide emissions from fuels will be treated regardless of the origin of the fuel carbon (bio- or fossil). Read the article on SpringerLink here.
