2010). The public is interested in knowing what the environmental impacts are on water and air quality, C-sequestration, and native plants and animals and their habitats; what the appropriate spatio-temporal scales are at which to examine environmental effects; and how potential trade-offs in environmental cost and benefits can be considered. , 2011). , 2011). Biofuel production from grain crops has a variety of positive and negative effects on local and regional environments; its energy output and GHG balances differ depending on the crop, conversion and end-use technologies, and system boundaries.

Many farmers with smallholdings may lose land during consolidation and become unemployed. Although in recent years countries in general have become aware of the need to preserve forests and develop land-use change guidelines, programs and policies are in the developmental stage. Careful mapping and planning will be needed to identify suitable lands for biofuel crops so that high yields and profitability can be obtained while other interests are not infringed upon. The Brazilian example set by ZAE Cana (Sugarcane Agroecological Zoning for Ethanol Production) provides a good example.

Source: IEA (2010). 26 Biofuel Crop Sustainability cellulosic crops at competitive prices can only assure achieving target set for the replacement of biofuel in a timely manner. Summary and Conclusions It is expected that with the exception of sugarcane, the biofuel industry will incrementally transition into waste residues and perennial cellulosic crops. It is advisable that these perennial crop cultivation practices be based on the best management practices utilizing low-input technologies to lower production costs.
