Feedstock Feasibility Analysis

E-mail Print PDF

Once a project site or multiple sites have been qualified as suitable for further evaluation as potential feedstock supply sheds, the feasibility of the harvest, collection, storage and transportation activities, as a supply chain, must be more carefully evaluated and appropriately modeled.

A number of factors will have a significant impact on potential supply chain costs that must be well understood in providing a feedstock feasibility model and analysis. Some aspects like historical crop yields and the location and concentration of available agricultural biomass may be well understood from Supply Shed Assessment work already undertaken. Other critical factors include seasonal biomass harvest windows, grower practices and preferences, sustainable residue harvest yields and harvest labor availability. To this information PowerStock brings decades of operational and cost knowledge and experience with the harvest, collection, storage and transportation process steps and equipment.
