Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The transition to a bioeconomy, and thus to a higher dependence on biomass for a range of uses, faces several challenges. This Special Issue focuses on the use of biomass (from various sources) for producing bioenergy and the economic challenges of such usage. The scope of this Special Issue encompasses empirical and theoretical contributions that focus on bioenergy and, e.g., supply and demand issues, policy implementation and design, innovation, market creation, competition, and trade. Other areas of study may also be considered, but they must have a clear bearing towards identified economic challenges and be based on economic theory.

Historically, petroleum fuels have been the dominant fuel used for land transport. However, the growing need for sustainable national economics has urged us to incorporate more economical and ecological alternative vehicle fuels. The advantages and disadvantages of them complicate the decision-making process and compel us to develop adequate mathematical methods. Alternative fuel (compressed natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, and ethanol fuel mixtures), the standard prices and their ratios were investigated. A mathematical model to determine a critical ratio between alternative and conventional fuel prices had already been developed. The results of this were investigated. The results showed that the critical ratio is not a linear function on annual conventional fuel consumption costs. According to our simulation gaseous fuels were economically more attractive. Whereas, the use of bioethanol blends had more risk. Full article
