The captial cost is so low it must be a bug/placeholder?
Low capital costs / high opex costs were highlighted as a problem in E4tech's review of the Redpoint/CCC best of biomass model, and hence will have been revised by CCC. Redpoint's model states that:
- Capex has a "negligble value as currently all costs in VOM" - i.e. these costs are missing
- Variable opex includes "Processing + storage + road transport of input to site and onward transport of refined product to consumer" - i.e. these costs shouldn't be included
