Biofuels are not a cost-effective means of reducing emissions from road transport and pose significant sustainability problems, a new study from independent think-tank Chatham House has suggested. Current biofuels are a more expensive source of energy than fossil fuels and have lower energy densities, meaning that greater volumes of fuel are required, said the report. In terms of reducing emissions, the carbon abatement costs resulting from their use, excluding emissions from indirect land-use change, come to $165-$1,100 per tonne of […]
