Industrial Symbiosis Bioenergy : The importance of localization and collaboration for the profitability of biodiesel production (English)
The main purpose of this master thesis is to identify guidelines for a sustainable production that can provide useful information concerning the establishment of a biodiesel production. These guidelines concern the surrounding production environment, such as infrastructures and industries.
The thesis is based on theoretical grounds surrounding industrial symbiosis, biodiesel production and how sustainable development should be designed. A study of an already established producer in a similar business area has been used to provide a picture of similar projects. The thesis has with the supervisor's consent focused on the production conditions that are affected by location.
The production conditions selected are heating, raw material market, residual and sustainable profile. These are then evaluated through an Excel-based sensitivity analysis. The economic assessment showed that these conditions had limited impact on profitability. By combining these, however, it creates a profile of sustainability that will affect profitability in the long run.
