Abstract

As this article will argue: In the name of ‘‘sustainable biofuels,’’ efforts towards
future novel biofuels serve a common aim: to sustain the liquid fuel supply for an expanding transport sector, while gaining a commercial advantage through more flexible supply chains, whose profitability depends on more enclosures of human and natural resources. Agrofuel innovation trajectories have the same drivers as the current biofuel production causing sustainability problems and land-use competition.
