Scientific paper: Food Security Principle for Biomass
This manual describes ZEF and Welthungerhilfe's food security criteria for voluntary biomass sustainability standards.
With the shift from petroleum-based to biomass-based economies, global biomass demand and trade is growing. This trend could become a threat to food security. Though rising concerns about sustainability aspects have led to the development of voluntary certification standards to ensure that biomass is sustainably produced, food security aspects are hardly addressed as practical criteria and indicators lack.
