Abstract

Biofuel is a green sustainable energy source that is made from living materials or mass, such as sugar cane, corn and edible or non-edible oils. India is rich in biomass due to its diverse climatic conditions, and most of the Indian peoples have tradition of utilization of bio-fuels from ancient time but inefficient use of these traditional biofuels lead to a create some health problems. The increasing population creates pressure on the present land use/ land cover (LULC) configuration of the earth to fulfil the increasing demand for biofuels. This article focuses on relation between biofuel demand and land use cover changes according to that.
