On the cover
Although the biofuel industry addresses, at least partially, both energy and  environmental issues, its activities utilize matter and energy and also generate  wastes, potentially affecting the environment and human health. In this issue of Biofuel Research Journal, Professor Marc A. Rosen (pp. 751-752) emphasizes that careful and serious consideration of the  environmental sustainability aspects of this industry is necessary. In the cover image, the application of exergy-based methods, encompassing the  essences of the other sustainability assessment tools like LCA, appear to  be promising  tools in the analysis of biofuel production systems from  thermodynamic, economic, and environmental perspectives simultaneously, leading to overall sustainability of the planet.
