Abstract

Ethanol and bio diesel enjoy growing popularity world-wide against a background of almost 100 US $ per barrel crude oil. The fuels open new socioeconomic perspectives for less developed countries. Can bio fuels become an economically profitable energy source, which can reduce pollution and increase prosperity ? The contribution draws first a differentiated picture of the causes and potential implications of the use of bio fuels for less developed countries. Then economic, social and ecological consequences of the bio fuel boom are discussed by the example of the sugar cane cultivation in Brazil and the Tortilla crisis in Mexico. - (IfL)
