Feedstock Readiness Level (FSRL) evaluation: Zea mays (corn stover), Alcohol-to-Jet, Central East, Mar. 2017

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 data from this evaluation, compiled in March 2017, assesses the maturity of Zea mays (corn stover) as a feedstock for the Alcohol-to-Jet conversion process in the United States Central East region.

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.
