Biofuels

These resources are split into two proposed sets or lessons. The first set explores the advantages and disadvantages of different types of biofuels, and the second looks at the biofuels debate and the impacts of biofuels production in more detail.

This resource was developed and trialled by Michelle Albury, Jennet Wade and Rebecca Ward, teachers at Graveney School in South London.
