ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study on biofuels which was presented at an invited paper session at the 2013 annual meeting of the Allied Social Sciences Association in San Diego, California. The research examines the benefits of biofuel policies on the economic development, provision of energy security and mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions in consideration of food, feed and fuel markets. It also considers constraints in the implementation of the Renewable Fuel Standards.
