A key element of implementing waste-to-fuel technologies in developing countries is determining the infrastructure and operational cost. This presentation centers on a complex workflow detailing the waste supply chain, starting from the type of waste or feed stock used to the process, the resulting fuel, and its applicable use. Key steps of the calculation are also outlined, including the site acquisition and costs of compression and storage, among others. The presentation concludes with the summation of the costs, a look at environmental costs and the overall formula for price per kilometer for buses using biofuels.
