Biofuels for Transport: Global Potential and Implications for Sustainable Energy and Agriculture (2007)
By The Worldwatch Institute, Pubished in association with BMELV, FNR and GTZ.

Biofuels for Transport is a unique and comprehensive assessment of the opportunities and risks of the large-scale production of biofuels. The book demystifies complex questions and concerns, such as the 'food v. fuel' debate. Global in scope, it is further informed by five country studies from Brazil, China, Germany, India and Tanzania. The authors conclude that biofuels will play a significant role in our energy future, but warn that the large-scale use of biofuels carries risks that require focused and immediate policy initiatives.
