Biofuels play an important role in the energy concept of the German government. In order to guarantee the sustainability of biofuels rules were enacted. The video explains the principles of the German "Biofuel Sustainability Ordinance"(long version)
Dartmouth's Jones Seminars on Science, Technology, and Society: Sustainable Biofuels: A Personal Odyssey Lee R. Lynd, Paul E. and Joan H. Queneau Distinguished Professor in Environmental Engineering Design, Thayer School of Engineering October 16, 2009
Newer biofuels that don't impact on land use have been given a boost by the Environment Committee which has backed new rules recognising the dangers of land-use changes.

Transport is Europe’s biggest greenhouse gas emitter and the fastest growing sector from an emissions perspective. While biofuels are part of the solution, their future role is hotly contested as part of a debate on European-wide renewables policy post-2020. The outcome of this debate will have important implications for Ireland. Within this context, Dr. Deane and Mr. Cogan assess the potential role biofuels could play in transport sector decarbonisation within the EU and Ireland in the period to 2030 and beyond.

Part of the University of Washington's Engage Program, Kelly Fleming presented her PhD research on Producing Economically and Environmentally Sustainable Biofuels. This talk was presented at Town Hall Seattle as part of the 2015 UW Science Now lecture series on April 23, 2015.
INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON SUSTAINABLE BIOFUELS 2018 WILL HELD IN INDIA. HERE DELEGATION FROM 19 COUNTRIES DISCUSS ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE AND DISCUSS UPCOMING IDEA ON IT. TO REDUCED GREEN HOUSE GAS EMISSION AND PROMOTE CLEAN ENERGY.
Jack Pronk, Professor of Biotechnology and Microbiology at the Delft Technical University in the Netherlands discusses what it took to produce a truly sustainable second generation biofuel made using only the non-edible parts of plants. He dreams that one day advanced biofuels will totally replace petroleum.
In Europe, transport accounts for 25% of greenhouse gas emissions and nearly 97% of all energy used in transport comes from fossil fuels. This is unsustainable. Europe needs a more sustainable energy future. In 2009, the EU passed the Renewable Energy Directive. Europe’s goal was ambitious and sensible: 10% renewable energy in transport by 2020. Thanks to that policy, first-generation biofuels today are a successful and important alternative to fossil fuels in transport. Europe is now home to a well-established industry that makes clean, renewable fuels, produced mainly from European crops. The biofuels industry has invested billions across the EU. Biofuels support 220,000 jobs and provide farmers with additional income. The benefits of biofuels are significant. First-generation biofuel...
There is an opportunity for the UK to align its need to develop new airport capacity with the development of sustainable bio jet fuels at scale. We should work to ensure that any new airport provide airlines with the best biofuels available.
Green Party MP Jeanette Fitzsimons and Green Party political advisor Rick Leckinger talk the talk about how New Zealand needs to walk the walk on sustainable biofuels. Jeanette has legislation ready to go which will protect New Zealand's sustainable biofuels industry from overseas biofuels - many of which are made from razing food crops and rainforests - not a sustainable way to go...
Sustainable alternative fuels are one of the most exciting and promising opportunities for reducing aviation's greenhouse gas emissions while improving local air quality. ICAO's work in this area is presented by Ted Thrasher of the ICAO Environment.
Transportation of people and all of our stuff accounts for almost one-third of all carbon emissions in the U.S. This means that if you want to reduce your carbon footprint, one of the biggest ways you can make a difference is by how you get around. - - - The California Academy of Sciences is the only place in the world with an aquarium, planetarium, natural history museum, and four-story rainforest all under one roof.

Biomass is an organic renewable energy source that includes materials such as agriculture and forest residues, energy crops, and algae. Scientists and engineers at the U.S. Department of Energy and its national laboratories are finding new, more efficient ways to convert biomass into biofuels that can take the place of conventional fuels like gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel. This edition of Energy 101 shows how biomass is broken down and refined into sustainable biofuels via biochemical and thermochemical processes.
