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. This document contains instructions, checklists for crops and for woody materials and residues, and a template for the report, as well as examples. Interested parties can use this template to submit Feedstock Readiness Evaluations to email@example.com for inclusion in the Farm2Fly2.0 FSRL repository.

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.
These evaluations are based on individual assessments at a given time and location and are not necessarily definitive or exhaustive.
