Description:

The International Biofuels Forum works to develop strategies to promote the sustained use and production of biofuels around the globe. The forum has created a mechanism to structure the dialogue among some of the biggest producers and consumers of biofuels to address energy security and climate change issues and to use biofuels as an instrument for development. IBF also works closely with the Global Bioenergy Partnership to create common standards and codes for bioenergy products and to consolidate and facilitate world trade.
