Bioenergy has been much talked about for many years. The debate often highlights the risk of competition between food and energy production. In addition, critics of bioenergy fear that valuable natural habitats will be lost as cultivation of crops such as maize and rape takes over. How biomass can be used for energy production without detriment to people, nature and the environment is the subject of our feature “Bioenergy – naturally sustainable?” The article outlines the findings of the “Bio-global” study produced by the Oeko-Institut and IFEU on behalf of the Federal Environment Agency.
