### Assessing the Environmental Externalities from Biofuels in Australia

by Clara Cuevas-Cubria

- In this paper, estimates of GHG and air pollutant emissions arising from biofuels and petroleum fuels production and use are employed to calculate the change in environmental externalities when substituting biofuels for petroleum fuels in Australia. These estimates of externalities highlight the need to better understand the environmental implications of biofuel production and use.
