Supplementary notes

Figures are in primary energy terms. To estimate raw biomass required for the production of liquid biofuels, a conversion efficiency of 50% is assumed to convert the final energy content of liquid biofuels to primary energy. Raw biomass refers to net input, thereby excluding biomass that goes back to the food chain, such as protein meal, dried distillers grains with solubles (DDGS), etc. and subtracting fossil energy required to produce, transfer and convert to final energy.
