Modelling the GHG emissions associated with the indirect land use impacts of biofuels

This report outlines the methodology used to calculate the ILUC impacts of 5 different biofuel feedstocks; oilseed rape, soy and palm biodiesel and wheat and sugarcane ethanol. An important element of the methodology was extensive stakeholder engagement. This report presents the results of the modelling study and also helps identify actions to help mitigate ILUC impacts. The report based on our model helped DfT formulate its position on ILUC and develop a response to the EU consultation on the subject.
