The Biomass Enterprise Economic Model is designed to help users rapidly evaluate and appropriately scale biomass utilization enterprises. Users can explore how woody biomass input volumes and the salable products mix influences capital establishment costs, annual operating costs, and annual revenue. The model is pre-loaded with cost and pricing data that automatically scales to the specific design scenario selected by the user. Many of the cost factors and product sales prices are also user-editable, to account for existing assets or different configurations and market conditions. The user can quickly see the impact of key variables on annual cash flow, capital investment, and simple payback. The details associated with attractive scenarios can be downloaded and saved.
Step-by-step user instructions are downloadable and provided in full on the model website.
