The Economics Of Growing And Delivering Cellulosic Feedstocks In The Beaumont, Texas Area
AbstractWe estimate the contract prices that must be paid to grow cellulosic energy crops, and the costs of harvesting and transporting those crops in the Beaumont, TX area. Results indicate that the delivered price would range between $54 and $101 per ton of dry matter depending on the specific crop.
