The Green Biofuels Index is a proposal by University of California, Berkeley researchers to rank biofuels according to environmental and sustainability criteria. By distinguishing more environmentally sound biofuels this is likely to create a larger market for green fuels.


  • Researchers propose Green Biofuels Index, 24 April 2007 from Biopact. Researchers have proposed a "Green Biofuels Index" that would rank biofuels according to environmental and sustainability criteria. The index would be used to create a market for sustainable biofuels. They have also proposed a range of policy options for using the Index, ranging from a pure free-market approach to more aggressive taxation and other measures.
