Title: Biofuels For Transport
Author: Brito Cruz C.H.

Abstract: Biofuels supplied 3. % of the energy used worldwide for road transportation in 2011. In the United States which is the largest biofuel producer in the world, biofuels generated 4. % of the energy used for transportation in 2011. In 2009, in Brazil, which is the second largest biofuel producer in the world, a total of 23. % of the energy for road transportation came from biofuels. Large-scale biofuel production in the world can substantially reduce emissions from the transport sector. In this chapter, we discuss the present status of biofuel production in the world, as well as some of the challenges relating to the environment and to the use of land, that result from large-scale biofuel production. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd All rights reserved.
