SuStainable Production of Second-Generation biofuelS

  title={SuStainable Production of Second-Generation biofuelS},
  author={Anselm eisentrAut and Franziska Mueller-Langer and Jens Giersdorf},
Global biofuel production has been increasing rapidly over the last decade, but the expanding biofuel industry has recently raised important concerns. In particular, the sustainability of many first-generation biofuels – which are produced primarily from food crops such as grains, sugar cane and vegetable oils – has been increasingly questioned over concerns such as reported displacement of food-crops, effects on the environment and climate change.
