Descarga Libro Potential For Biofuels For Transport In Developing Countries Pdf de Kojima Masami Y Johnson Todd13 Ago , 2016 42 0 0 Votos
Liquid biofuels made from biomass are attracting the interest of many countries worldwide as alternatives to gasoline for transport. Industrialized countries see biofuels as a way to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and diversify energy sources. For developing countries, biofuels can bolster rural development, create jobs, and save on costs of importing oil. A combination of these factors, exacerbated by recent surges in world oil prices, has prompted numerous countries to consider biofuel development programs. Today, Brazil has the world?s largest biofuel market, leading in ethanol use. The greatest barrier to biofuel development is economics. Oil prices are the greatest determinant for biofuel production and commercial viability, as biofuels are considered substitutes for oil when oil prices are high. Subsidies are needed to launch and maintain biofuel production in most developing countries, but governments in every country should improve their investment climates by establishing a stable and transparent legal and fiscal framework.
