This model evaluates the potential success of a cellulosic ethanol plant in Florida. Critical economic factors of the plant were simulated to assess the feasibility of this project. These critical factors include the feedstock to be used, the cost of the facility, transportation costs, and the discount rate for the net present value (NPV). Results and observations are presented in this chapter.
