Societal Motivations and Barriers in Biofuels

Understanding the public attitude, barriers to use and adoption of bioenergy crops and fuels is important due to varied stakeholder groups involved in the entire supply chain, beginning with landowners and ending with the consumers. Each member of the supply chain will have a different position about the industry based on their contribution to the market and the opportunities and challenges faced by them. For example, the forest landowners will more likely be interested in feedstock growth and production as the market grows whereas, the consumers will be more likely to be affected by the availability or the fuel economy for their vehicle. This task focuses on exploring the perceptions of various stakeholder groups about the bioenergy industry to identify their knowledge and information gaps and needs to help develop targeted educational tools.
