The battle for biomass: A systematic review of food-feed-fuel competition
- Global Food Security
- Humanity faces the challenge of feeding a growing population andsupplying its energy needs without exhausting the biological and phy-sical resources of the planet, as articulated in the SustainableDevelopment Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations (UN GeneralAssembly, 2015). Achieving food and nutrition security is central to theSDGs. As the global population grows and becomes wealthier, the de-mand for food, especially animal-source food will increase particularlyin developing countries (Alexandratos and Bruinsma, 2012). Increasingdemand for animal-source food, moreover, is intrinsically associatedwith an increasing demand for feed (Thornton, 2010).
