Abstract [en]

A current discussion of winner and loser is the issue of low-carbon development toward sustainability. Biofuel, as granted an important role to curtail the carbon emission and secure energy supply, has been also involved in this discussion. However, unfortunately, a biofuel potential has been raising fear worldwide since the surge of its development favors large-scale patterns, which are bringing widely social-economical and environmental impacts. How to foster strengths and circumvent weaknesses to plan this sector is the core of this paper. China has emerged to be the second economic entity with huge appetite for energy. This study is expected to explain China’s experiences in this field with guidance of effective biofuel planning.
