Biofuels in India: Future Challenges. P. Shinoj, enhancing community participation in. to grow biofuel crops more land and water will be needed. Note: Zimbabwe faces a situation very similar to that of Mozambique in terms of the crops both countries grow for biofuel production, the water scarcity both countries face, and the policy that both countries have towards feedstocks grown for biofuel purposes [17].

biofuels production. Because of its tropical climate, Africa can grow crops such as sugar cane, castor, and jatrophia that have higher fuel contents than those feedstocks cultivated in temperate zones for biofuels production Many argue, for instance, that because sugar cane produces more th an twice the ethanol per acre as.

Sharon Lezberg provided training materials to approximately extension, NRCS educators, and community stakeholders on ways to engage community members and stakeholders in assessing proposed bioenergy developments. Crop residues and animal dung can contribute a significant portion to the biomass available for conversion to biofuels in Zimbabwe.

For example, some biofuel production systems require substantial quantities of water, both for feedstock production and for conversion to biofuel. This demand could reduce the availability of water for household use, threatening the health status and thus the food-security status of.

Smallholder farmers are vital in the development of a biofuel industry. The study sought to assess the implications in the adoption of biofuel crops by smallholder : Priviledge Cheteni.

’s Roles in the National Jatropha-Growing Project 42 In Africa, civil society groups and unions called for removal of some food crops from the biofuels feedstock mix. In addition to exacerbating food shortages and poverty, biofuels were being linked to deforestation, neo-colonial- scale biofuel production if they were.

Global production of biofuels is growing steadily and will continue to do so. Biofuels offer greater energy security, reduced emissions of greenhouse gases and particulates, rural development, better vehicle performance, and reduced demand for petroleum.

The overall performance of different biofuels in reducing non-renewable energy use and greenhouse gas emissions varies when considering the entire lifecycle from production through to use.

The net performance depends on the type of feedstock, the production process and the amount of Cited by: Citation: Annie Dufey,Biofuels production, trade and sustainable development: emerging issues, International Institute for Environment and Development, London.

Among the world’s continents, Africa has the highest incidence of food insecurity and poverty and the highest rates of population growth. Yet Africa also has the most arable land, the lowest crop yields, and by far the most plentiful land resources relative to energy demand.
