Title: Setting Global Standards for Sustainable Biofuels Development
Author: Woods, Jeremy
Abstract: Environmental standards are vital if the international trade in biofuels was to be allowed to begin on a massive scale. Large-scale production of biofuels in Asia — such as palm oil plantations in Papua New Guinea — could cause serious environmental challenges for the entire planet, starting with the clearance of forested land for plantations. Development should focus on second-hand generation biofuels are produced from the by-products of food crops, such as sugarcane, rather than crops grown purely for bio-fuel production.
