Abstract: 
Biokraftstoffe galten einst als grüner Hoffnungsträger für eine nachhaltigere Automobilität. Mit verstärktem Einsatz gerieten sie jedoch zunehmend in die Kritik. Dennoch bleiben Biokraftstoffe die wichtigste Alternative zu fossilen Kraftstoffen. Die Autoren diskutieren die Rolle der Biokraftstoffe im Verkehrssektor heute und in der Zukunft.
Abstract (Translated): 
Biofuels have been the only alternative fuel which has substantially contributed to supplying transport with energy. Biofuels enjoyed broad support, but now they have come under criticism. In order to obtain answers to the question of what role biofuels could play in the future fuel mix, the following aspects are analysed: competing uses of scarce biomass and biofuels; sustainability of biofuels, standards and certifi cation schemes; types and availability of biofuels; potentials for bioenergy and biofuels; and the technical compatibility of biofuels with vehicles. Finally, preconditions and necessary policy measures for the increased deployment of sustainable biofuels are examined.
