The Umweltbundesamt GmbH carries out the project the proVision-project
"Biofuels - potentials, risks and future scenarios" for the Ministry of
Science and Research. In this context, the impacts of the use of
biofuels on air quality and human health are investigated. Photochemical
model calculations of air quality for several scenarios of biofuel-use
are performed to deduce the effect on health issues.
