GHG Emissions for Biofuel Production Based on Cassava and Palm Oil in Thailand

W. Siemers
Biofuels in use in Thailand are bioethanol from cassava and biodiesel from oil palm products. For both biofuels an expansion is foreseen to reach the political targets. This would have implications on the land use in Thailand. The whole land use change mechanisms are therefore analyzed and models are discussed to quantify the impact of these changes on the final energy and GHG balance. Together with results from the life­cycle analysis of the biofuel production...
