Chapter 10: Assessing the stakeholder support for diff erent biofuel options in France by 2030 using the range-based Multi Actor Multi Criteria Analysis framework

Gino Baudry and Thomas Vallée


Over the years, the benefits of biofuel deployment have been widely criticized, whether in terms of economic development or socio-environmental impacts. To help decision makers in implementing sustainable biofuel policy in France by 2030, this study evaluates the support of French stakeholders for different biofuel options. The range-based Multi Actor Multi Criteria Analysis (MAMCA), explicitly considers the different and occasionally conflicting stakeholders’ objectives (feedstock producers, biofuel producers, refining industry, fuel distributors, end-users, car manufacturers, government and non-governmental organizationss). It also provides an exploratory scenario approach that considers the uncertainty about the context evolution and the biofuels’ impacts. The range-based MAMCA identifies the pros and cons of biofuels for each stakeholder group, which helps in implementing additional policy measures to comply with their heterogeneous needs.
