Title of the thesis:Impacts of biofuels on food prices
Summary:Presented diploma thesis with title "Impacts of biofuels on food prices" aims to identify and analyse price relationship among production of biofuels and price of food demonstrated on selected commodities. Biofuels development has received increased attention in recent times to mitigate climate change, alleviate global energy concerns and foster rural development. Nevertheless, the rapid growth of biofuels production has raised many concerns among experts worldwide, regarding sustainability issues and the threat posed to food security. We need to ensure that policies promoting biofuels are consistent with maintaining food security. Analysis of possible impacts of biofuels production on food prices is of crucial importance. Diploma thesis is divided into two parts. In the first - the theoretical one, we focus on general knowledge about biofuels and their types. We explain what food security is, food availability and we also look on legislative of biofuels. We will also define what is price formation process. In second part, which is practical, we will focus on specific analysis of production and price of maize and rapeseed in selected years. We also do analysis what create price of biofuels. In the end of practical part, we analysed selected studies on biofuels and impact on food prices and we used regression analysis to find out if production of biofuels - ethanol and MERO has impact on food prices.
Key words:biomass, regression, biofuels
