The Social Dimension of EU Biofuel Policy

In the early 2000s, biofuels were seen as a panacea for several environmental and economic challenges. In more recent years, however, their promotion has faded substantially.

This Ecologic Brief provides an assessment of the extent to which social aspects of biofuel production are addressed in current EU policies.
