The resources aim to help students consider the advantages and disadvantages of different types of biofuels that are being produced or may be produced in future as renewable sources of energy for transport. Using these resources, students will begin by learning about the different types of biofuels that are being produced as alternative renewable sources of energy. They will explore the advantages and disadvantages of these different types of biofuels, and begin to make comparisons.

The resources have been created and trialled as a cross-curricular exercise for whole classes or larger student groups at Key Stage Three and above.

The resources were developed by a team of teachers at Graveney School in South London, coordinated by Rebecca Ward, a member of the Council’s Education Advisory Group.

These materials are based on the Nuffield Council on Bioethic's 2011 report: Biofuels: ethical issues.
