LCA-based environmental assessment of biofuels By-products, indirect land use change, water demand and biodiversitiy - current research topics and possibilities for political regulation

Some relevant environmental problems related to biofuel production are indirect land use changes, regional water scarcity and biodiversity losses. In this study, Elisa Dunkelberg, Josephin Lehnert and Anna Neumann present LCA-based or compatible methods that are used or could be used to detect and evaluate these impacts. Additionally, further research questions are identified and options for political regulation measures are discussed.
