The population on Earth is growing and we need more food. Climate change is both a reality and a threat.

The good news is that by doing this we can create a lot of new good jobs; and a large part of the technologies are already developed. It is possible. The optimism lies in the fact that in Denmark we are already very good at green technologies, biological production and food production.

Through insightful illustrations, the new publication from the United Federation of Danish Workers 3F, authored by the Technical University of Denmark in collaboration with BioValue SPIR, explains the opportunities of moving towards the biobased society by providing an overview of available biomass sources in Denmark and demonstrating how they are utilised.
