This study shows that without modification the existing EU biofuels mandate is unlikely to deliver significant carbon benefits. If, however, iLUC factors are included in the policy in future, the policy would be likely to achieve the targeted 50% carbon reductions.
Study using satellite mapping data of historical and projected rates at which oil palm plantations in Indonesia and Malaysia have expanded and will expand onto peat soils
Argues that studies of the effects of palm oil plantation expansion in SE Asia have significantly underestimated GHG emissions from palm oil grown on peatland, and therefore underestimate the indirect land use change emissions from many biofuels.
Technical note on crop yield-price and land-price elasticities, key determinants of indirect land use change.
