Optimum scale of feedstock processing for renewable diesel production – P. Miller, A. Sultana and A. Kumar – Biofuels Bioproducts & Biorefining 2012

Summary: In this study, a techno-economic model was developed to estimate the cost of vegetable oil production and the production plant economic optimum size using canola or camelina as feedstock. A sensitivity analysis found that field cost and meal price have the greatest effect on oil cost; the optimum size of the plant, on the other hand, is most sensitive to transportation, capital, operating and maintenance costs.
