The aim of this study is to provide a comprehensive review of the current state of the art with regard to the production and use of biofuels and to establish potential needs in RTD and technology transfer. The technical applications of existing gaseous biofuels are considered and the potential benefits of using biological commodities as energy sources are discussed. The positive and negative environmental impacts stemming from the production and use of biofuels are analysed and an economic analysis of market issues related to energy and fossil fuels is presented.
