Micro-workshop

Abstract

I will investigate the current debate regarding biofuels, such as the differences between ethanol and biodiesel. My presentation will be a robust investigation of biodiesel and the issues associated with biofuel. Currently, biofuels are getting a lot of attention in the media. To mention a few of the issues: debate of food verses fuel, appropriate land use for growing feedstock, and biodiesel quality. The question is: to what extent is biofuel driving up the price of soybean and corn? The direct competition for food versus fuel has never been seen before. The social justice aspects of biofuels are in question. I will address these issues in my presentation.
