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.
