Feedstock Readiness Level Evaluations Summary Table v2.0

Feedstock readiness level evaluations are performed for a specific feedstock-conversion process combination and for a particular region. FSRL evaluations complement evaluations of Fuel Readiness Level (FRL) and environmental progress. The table in this dataset collates the results of the FSRL evaluations listed under the Farm2Fly Ag Data Commons datasets to enable users to quickly identify, review, and compare available evaluations. Evaluation scores are explained in the FSRL Checklist and Template available on the NAL Ag Data Commons - scores range from 1 to 9, with higher values indicating greater maturity of the feedstock in each area of assessment (production, market development, policy evaluation and compliance, and linkage to conversion efficiency). The overall score reflects the lowest maturity area within the four assessment areas.

Summary data files of the compiled evaluations will be added to the repository on a quarterly basis, and are cumulative (the last quarter will contain the compiled evaluation results from the entire year). To access the newest evaluations that are not yet included in the most recent compilation, visit the Farm 2 Fly program page to view all datasets. The date of update/submission is indicated in the title of the file.

Intended Use
The evaluations are intended to be used for two purposes: first, to enable stakeholders to identify gaps where further research, development or investment may be needed to facilitate readiness of a particular feedstock for a given conversion process, and second, to allow parties interested in developing alternative fuel facilities to understand what feedstocks may be available in the near term in a particular region.
Use Limitations
These evaluations are based on individual assessments at a given time and location and are not necessarily definitive or exhaustive.
