(37d) Pan American Issues on Biofuel Sustainability
AIChE Annual Meeting
Monday, November 4, 2013 - 9:45am to 10:10am
Biofuels are in rapid development in many Pan American countries, yet the nature and extent of impacts on social and environmental systems from large-scale biofuel development are not well understood. This talk will explore sustainability issues across a broad set of impacts and in different Pan American countries and will begin to outline important research gaps. A future research agenda to overcome these knowledge gaps would help establish a new and growing biofuels industry onto a sustainable path.
