The biodiesel industry in the United States has grown significantly in recent years. Production increased from 25 million gallons
in 2004 to an estimated 250 million gallons in 2006, and many new plants are being built. Most biodiesel in the United States is
produced from soybean oil, but canola offers characteristics which make it a favorable feedstock for biodiesel production.
Characteristics of canola oil also make it an increasingly popular choice for human consumption. This study examines the
structure of the biodiesel and canola industries. Specifically, the study describes changes in the biodiesel industry, trends in
canola production in the United States and Canada, profitability and production risk for canola, the characteristics of canola...

Historical regulation of Victoria's water sector: A case of government failure?
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Harris,
This paper analyses the role of government failure in Victoria’s water sector between 1905 and 1984 as evidenced in the rise of
in-stream salinity. It will be shown that high levels of salinity can, in part, be attributed to regulatory failure for two reasons. First,
the method of water allocation, a compulsory minimum charge with the marginal cost of water being zero, encouraged over
watering, resulting in increased water tables via groundwater recharge. Second, the government did not provide adequate finance
for construction of appropriate removal of saline drainage water, and thereby allowed increasing in-stream salinity.

Economics of Biomass Fuels for Electricity Production: A Case Study with Crop Residues

In the past, studies on agricultural feedstocks for energy production were motivated by rising fossil fuel prices interpreted by
many as caused by resource depletion. However, today's studies are mainly motivated by concerns for climate change and global
warming. Currently, most studies concentrate on liquid fuels with little study devoted toward electricity. This study examines
crop residues for electricity production in the context of climate change and global warming. We use sector modeling to simulate
future market penetration for biopower production from crop residues. Our findings suggest that crop residues cost much more
than coal because they have lower heat content and higher production/hauling costs. For crop residues to have any role in...
