ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study on the indirect effect of greenhouse gas emissions (GHGE) of biofuel which was presented at an invited paper session at the 2013 annual meeting of the Allied Social Sciences Association. Through the use of economic analysis, the research examines the use of indirect land use change in the life cycle analysis in computing the GHGE as well as the inclusion of indirect food consumption effect and indirect coproduct effect of biofuels.
