About the Journal
GCB Bioenergy exists to promote understanding of the interface between biological sciences and the production of fuels directly from plants, algae and waste.
The journal focuses on topics in the context of biological implications:
- Bioenergy feedstock and bio-oil production from energy crops, algae ,biological residues and co-products
- Feedstock management, genomics, genetic improvements, production modeling, composition, pests, diseases and weeds
- Sustainability, and biodiversity issues.
- Socioeconomics of crops, crops systems and their processing
- Policy and legislative developments affecting biofuels and bioenergy
- Systems Analysis of feedstock production, microbial deconstruction and fuel synthesis

In GCB-Bioenergy's March Issue Round Up Podcast, we explore three featured articles. The first article looks at Miscanthus, a bioenergy crop, and its lack of genetic diversity. In our second article, we look at palm oil, a rapidly expanding crop in the tropics, and the potential consequences of this expansion on the global carbon cycle. Lastly, our third article looks at the pros and cons of using corn harvest leftovers for bioenergy. Access the podcast here.
