Abstract

This article analyses various causes of sustainability problems from agrofuels, especially from agri-industrial production methods in the global South. We will discuss the following questions:

. How are agrofuel crops being promoted as sustainable, beneficent sources of energy*and at the same time criticized as malign, even unsustainable?

. How does this conflict involve different accounts of sustainability?
