Win-win-win solution for biofuel, climate, and biodiversity

In Brazil, the demand for alternative energy sources has led to an increase in biofuel crops.

With over 2.5 million square kilometers of existing cleared lands in Brazil, much of which is degraded pasture lands, there is already a large potential area for biofuel crop expansion.
