Biofuels, Bioenergy and Food Security: Technology, Institutions and Policiesexplores the popular Food vs. Feed' debate through a discussion of the complex interlinking relationship between the biofuel and agricultural markets. From the importance of bioenergy in the context of climate change, to the potentially positive environmental consequences of growing second generation biofuels crops, including corn stover, switchgrass and jatropha, this book provides important insights into the impacts of biofuels policy and technical implementation. Presented through the lens of the current and emerging biofuels market, this book includes country-specific case studies that explain existing biofuel policy and its consequences on energy and agricultural markets.

  • Provides an integrated overview of the world biofuel market by country, including a summary of the existing biofuel policies, the role of investment opportunities and rural development potential
  • Discusses the potential opportunities to become energy independent from the perspective of developing countries
  • Serves as a practical guide for policymakers
  • Includes insights into possible environmental benefits derived from the uses of biomass-based biofuel
