International visit

Last Friday we were visited by a group of international delegates from all over the world. The visit was arranged by the Swedish metrological institute and was a part of a training programme for planning of future society and transports.

Our colleague, Peter Danielsson, knowledgeable in both environmental matters and high capacity transport systems, hosted the meeting.

A lot of questions were raised about future sustainable fuels and specifically about the competition with food.

The worries concerned both the fact that the people suffering the most from high food prices are not the same person as the once that can gain from increased prices for agricultural products. And, in addition the regions suffering the most are big net importers of food.
