In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

Feedstocks do compete with each other.
And they compete with other land uses.
“Winners” will be judged on:
– Delivered feedstock costs (land use, refiner profitability)
– Return per acre (land use, grower profitability)
– Ethanol yields per acre (land & logistics costs, land use)
– Ethanol yield per ton (logistics, carbon implications)
– Refinery capital costs (return on investment)
– Production costs (return on sales)
– Perceived environmental impact (political and social
ramifications can trump economic considerations)
