ABSTRACT
The article discusses a research study conducted by I. Gelfand and colleagues to compare energy balances between using all harvestable biomass for food and using all harvestable biomass for biofuel production. The researchers found that using cropland for food than for fuel production is more energetically efficient. They also suggest that good cropland should be used for food production rather than for biofuel production.
