The use of biofuels to mitigate global warming

, : The use of biofuels to mitigate global warming. A global warming forum: scientific, economic, and legal overview: 475-485

The use of plant biomass could eliminate CO2 accumulation from fossil fuel combustion. Processes available to produce ethanol, methane, methanol, and other chemicals, are reviewed.

Biochar application to agricultural soils can change the surface albedo which could counteract the climate mitigation benefit of biochar systems. However, the size of this impact has not yet been quantified. Based on empirical albedo measurements...

No-tillage (NT) management has been promoted as a practice capable of offsetting greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions because of its ability to sequester carbon in soils. However, true mitigation is only possible if the overall impact of NT adoption red...
