The purpose of this paper is to develop a sustainability assessment method to rank the priority sequence of biofuel production pathways. A novel fuzzy Multicriteria Decision Making method which allows the stakeholders and decision-makers to use linguistic terms and variables to assess the biofuel production pathways has been developed. Nine criteria related to in economic, environmental, technological, and social-political aspects have been used in sustainability assessment. Three bioethanol production pathways including corn-, wheat-, and cassava-based technologies have been studied by the proposed method, and the priority sequence of these three pathways for bioethanol production has been determined.
