Abstract

The aim of this paper is to analyze the feasibility of establishing a supply chain for castor oil biodiesel distribution in Central Mexico, based on the distribution of land with the highest castor oil seed yield potential. The supply chain analysis is focused on meeting the biodiesel demand for the region, assuming a B20 mix usage, from the proposed plantation sites to refineries and gas stations, using Network Optimization, and defining the required biodiesel production increase to achieve this.
