Feedstock Supply Chain Cost Model

E-mail Print PDF

An initial feedstock supply chain cost model should originate with the feasibility study. This first model reflects a series of assumptions that are based on limited direct experience of the operating environment. This model is designed to indicate a cost basis of around +/- 30%. Input from an Experimental Harvest activity is designed to deepen and further inform this model by adding direct operational experience to reduce uncertainty. Creating greater certainty in feedstock supply chain costs comes from advancing an understanding of the resources, equipment, and processes best suited to the operating environment and a more in-depth understanding of the field conditions to which the project must prepare and adapt. Depending upon the precise scope of work, the cost model developed after the experimental harvest could be a fully built-out, baseline supply chain cost model designed to guide the planning and implementation of the feedstock supply system.
