Straw, grass, manure and wood can be a real bonanza for rural areas. The initial results of our study of the effects of a bio-based economy in Denmark shows that in 2030, 23,700 new jobs can be created if we, at the time, produce 10 tons more biomass per year than now.
Out of the 23,700 jobs, 18,500 will be in rural areas. Thereby making three quarters of the jobs go to skilled and unskilled workers who are in need of jobs.
3F’s think tank has commissioned Copenhagen Economics to analyse the employment effects of a bio-based economy in Denmark, specifically addressing local and geographical aspects.
The full report will be published on our website in September.
