Title: Redpoint Best Use of Biomass (2011) Biomass conversion dry biomass, biocrops and waste to solid Pelletising 2011

Content: Source notes "AEA et al (2010) UK and Global Bioenergy Resource report for DECC - adjusted to reflect resource cost"

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"
* Variable opex includes "Processing + storage + road transport of input to site and onward transport of refined product to consumer"

* 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
