you've still got the issue of what does it cost to haul the biomass up to 30 miles.

As I mentioned before, Telegraph, this is not an unknown. Dupont knows and every farmer in the area knows what they expect to get paid for a bale of straw, a waste crop usually from wheat. That can be converted to pounds, giving Dupont a good quality number to work with.

I cannot imagine Dupont investing $200MM without having done this calculation.

I agree profit is the issue. Dupont's investment demonstrates their confidence that they can make the plant profitable.
