How Do We Spend the LEAST Amount of Money to Produce the MOST Fuel?

Next

Chemical and mechanical engineers work to develop the most cost effective way to supply cellulosic ethanol.

To help find the best supply chain that has the lowest cost of production, engineers can run computer models called simulations.

When a simulation is run and finds the lowest cost method of production they can use this method on a larger production scale.

In the next activity, you will be asked to become a manufacturer make decisions for your own company.

You will look at TWO factors:

  • Material costs
  • Transportation costs

Remember you want the most ethanol for your money!!
