Non-food biofuel speceis are invasive, according to the New Scientist (http://www.newscientist.com/blog/environment/2008/05/invasion-of-biofuel-species.html). Of course they are, they're weeds. If people don't eat plants or the subtances they produce and if the plant is not in someway ornamental, then its a weed.
On the brigher side, they should grow quickly, so yeilds should be high.
