"Biofuels induced land use change emissions: The role of implemented emissions factors in assessing terrestrial carbon fluxes"
by Taheripour, Farzad, Kwon Hoyoung, Steffen Mueller, Isaac Emery, Omid Karami and Ehsanreza Sajedinia

No major effort has been made to assess uncertainties in land use emissions values of biofuels due to changes in emissions factors. This paper aims to fill this knowledge gap with two different but related research activities. The first research activity studies the available sources of information on vegetation and soil carbon data sets that have been used in developing land use emissions factors to understand their similarities and differences across various land types and ecological conditions. The second research activity mixes the estimated land use changes obtained from an advanced version of the GTAP-BIO model for a wide range of biofuel pathways with various sets of emissions factors obtained from different vegetation and soil carbon data sources (examined in the first research activity) to examine the sensitivity of the ILUC emissions values for the examined pathways with respect to the changes in emissions factors. These research activities make significant contributions to the existing debates on uncertainties in ILUC emissions values.
