Project(s)

Biofuels Law and Regulation: System Sustainability

This project applies systems thinking in its quest for new policy approaches to more timely and effective commercialization of biofuels and bioenergy. Law as a discipline has been slow to conceive conceptual frameworks for policymaking that incorporate the complex interaction between social, environmental, political and economic institutions. The project thus pursues such development within the institution of Law from both ex-post and ex-ante perspectives. Simultaneously, it focuses on the myriad individual components of systems-level challenges and solutions both in the U.S. and abroad, such as policies that address the food-fuel resource scarcity debate, and biofuels sustainability standard development and incorporation of sustainability principles into the supply chain (started in 2012).
