The substitution of fossil fuels requires a thorough analysis of the social, environmental and economic impacts of technologies and practices regarding the sustainable expansion of biofuels production in the world.
The FAPESP Programs BIOEN, BIOTA and PFPMCG are organizing a Joint Workshop on Biofuels & Sustainability in cooperation with SCOPE to produce a set of recommendations from academia, industry, governmental and non-governmental institutions for the sustainable expansion of biofuels.
This workshop will be opening a rapid assessment process for global biofuels sustainability and its implications on policy in the context of local and a global green economy.
