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.
