Title : Ethics and Moral Values in the Development and Production of New Biofuels


Biofuels are promoted as one of the few options to replace liquid fossil fuels that offer a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. But there are serious concerns about negative effects on food security and the environment. Thus, it is very important for biofuel development and production to meet regulatory and ethical conditions that control this type of fuel.
Through the development and production of biofuels, two ethical considerations arise, food and nature. The ethical rules regarding food security are obvious, even if their application is not. The ethical imperative here is to improve fundamental food security for all. Rules are not so clear in the natural issue, due to many factors related to preservation and sustainable development as well as the technical improvements in agriculture. 
In this presentation, the author introduces some important ethical issues which have also to be considered as selection rules to control the production of biofuel, which is in strong connection with the environment, safety, and security of the human being on earth. As scientific development may carry some risks under its wings, the triangle of ethics, safety, and security will make us sure that any development of any new biofuel is safe, by itself, for humans and the environment, i.e., it will not be a hazardous material as nuclear, radiological, chemical, or biological agents, and will not be used in the future as a tool for destruction in the hands of evil people. Regulations and regulatory bodies are responsible for safety and security measures, while scientists are responsible for the ethical and moral values of the materials in their hands.

Audience Takeaway:

  • The importance of ethical and moral values in the development of biofuel.
  • The integration between ethics, safety, and security.
  • The role of ethics in considering the coming generations and their rights to have a clean earth, and sufficient food, water, and energy resources
