Abstract

The food crisis of 2007–08 has been one of the major factors in the twenty-first century, which has led nations to explore the option of a quick ‘green revolution’. Also, the developed and developing countries are in need of more fuel to fulfil their energy requirements, forcing the nations across the world to look for alternatives. One such discovery that addresses the second part of the problem has come in the form of investing in biofuels in continents like Africa, Latin America and some parts of Southeast Asia. The vehement critics of the abuse of nature have come out with a strong discourse combining issues of both food crisis and climate change together, which has given a new dimension to the problem. Biofuels using feedstock and the available land for energy requirements have invited special attention and criticism in recent times.
