The production cost of biofuels is a major determinant of their potential contribution as alternative sources of energy. This chapter provides a review of the literature on production costs of first and second generation biofuels, including a breakdown of their main components. In the process we highlight some of the resasons behind the widely divergent cost estimates that have been published.
