The article focuses on the role of bioenergy crops for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) environmental impact. It says that bioenergy's sustainable use may address climate change due to the reduction of fossil carbon dioxide emissions. It discusses the how biofuels lessen against climate change, wherein the reasons for biofuel crops' adaptation are improved energy security and GHG mitigation. Moreover, it tackles the role of Indirect Land Use Change (ILUC) in the biofuel industry.
