International Biofuels Survey- please take part

A Master’s student from the University Of Auckland, New Zealand and Intern at SCION Research, is conducting an international study on the strategic development of the liquid biofuels industry.

The aim of the research is to understand what factors Decision Makers within academia, industry and government see as most important when choosing between and evaluating biofuel alternatives. The intent is to create a ‘decision support model’ for biofuel development, which could be used by the various stakeholders within the liquid biofuels industry.

The research involves completing a questionnaire which asks participants to rank and weight the importance of key  Decision Making factors and sub-factors within Environment, Infrastructure, Macro & Micro Economic, Policy, Social, and Technical categories.

The researcher, Haylon Smith, is seeking the participation of individuals with broad knowledge of the international biofuels industry, preferably those in management, scientific or advisory roles at a senior level. Please contact him directly  ( by the 31st of August if you are able to partake in this research or if you would like further information.
