Environment and Natural Resources

This section provides a list of guiding questions and sub-questions on potential environmental impacts (other than climate and air quality impacts) of bioenergy production and use. The following environmental impact categories were identified:

In the scientific community, the dynamics of direct and indirect land-use change are still widely debated with respect to bioenergy. As the research evolves, emerging and commonly accepted methodologies should be applied in order to better measure/estimate the impacts of bioenergy production and use.
