The role of biofuels in a just transition to a low carbon economy
04 Sep 19
Stephen Wetmore and Ian Welsh
Stephen Wetmore, director of business development at the Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials, and Ian Welsh discuss biofuel feedstocks and their role in moving to a low carbon economy.
Wetmore outlines the challenges around balancing the demands in a developing bio-economy, and debates some of the unintended consequences that can arise. He argues the case for always keeping ultimate relative carbon emissions front of mind when considering the best use of potential feedstocks.
