    Description: Biofuels – Is Sugar the New Oil?

    As global crude oil supplies become more expensive and uncertain, many countries view biofuels from conventional sugar crops as a cheaper, cleaner, more secure substitute for oil. Several questions arise: Once sugar becomes a major energy source, how will sugar prices vary with crude oil prices and with rising demand? Are biofuels truly a cleaner alternative to oil-derived fuels? Will current technologies be compatible with future sources of sugar?
