During the past two days of the 2013 World Biofuels Markets Exhibition and Congress, there have been many exchanges about the role of biofuels in achieving global energy security.

This culminated during the plenary keynote session where eight speakers from the finance, non-governmental organisations, security and energy industry, discussed this and other issues crucial to the success of the biofuels industry.

The efficacy of using biofuels in comparison to unsustainable fossil fuels and the biofuels industry's capacity to cut emissions and avert catastrophic global warming also featured largely in the debate.
