  1. 1. Assessing the sustainability of bioethanol production in different development contexts: A systems approach

    Author : Dilip Khatiwada; Semida Silveira; Faaij André; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; bioenergy and biofuel; bioethanol industry; development trend; sustainability assessment; climate change mitigation; energy security; life cycle assessment; systems optimisation; bioenergi och biobränsle; bioetanolindustri; utvecklingstrender; hållbarhetsbedömning; motverka klimatförändringar; energisäkerhet; livscykelanalys; systemoptimering; SRA - Energy; SRA - Energi;

    Abstract : The continuous depletion of fossil fuel reserves, the global agenda on climate change and threats to energy security have led to increased global interest in the exploration, production and utilisation of bioenergy and biofuels. Access to modern bioenergy carriers derived from the efficient conversion of locally available biomass resources is indispensable for economic growth, rural development and sustainable development in developing countries.
