Seminar at Fores: How to reduce car emissions and grow the bioeconomy

On the 19th of May, Nordregio held a well-received seminar together with Swedish think tank Fores on financial incentives to reduce new cars’ CO2 emissions and boost the Nordic bioeconomy. The main attraction was the report Nya bilars koldioxidutsläpp – analys marknad för marknad that the Swedish 2030 secretariat have written with support from Nordregio.

The report was presented by Jakob Lagercrantz from the 2030 secretariat. After that, Nordregio’s Senior Research Fellow Jukka Teräs presented an overview of the Nordic bioeconomy and results from research conducted by Nordregio. Clas Engström from Processum biorefinary in Örnsköldsvik presented their case and gave a brief on the issues they face, as an actor in the bioeconomy business.
