Benefits [#73]
2.1- Biofuels can have a positive economic  impact in developing and developed countries .
Employment opportunities are mainly linked to biofuel processing and the provision of agricultural and forestry feedstocks. This is particularly important for rural areas, where other options may be limited,

2.2-In developing countries the small scale production of oils from biomass can also be used locally to replace fossil diesel in generators and small scale electricity generation.

2.3- Bioenergy crops could well be a means to alleviate poverty, and to increase food security through income generation. Food security is not just a problem of production but of access.
