This study is one of five that has been done based on Lunds Energi's planned investment in bioenergy. The plan is to build two large burners, at Örtofta, that's going to be supplied with biofuels. In this study I take a closer look on the profitability when you choose to sell your cereal as bioenergy. I've been calculating with selling the straw from the grain crops and winter rape, selling the rye weat as whole crop and fertilize the hemp with sewage sludge. I've only been calculating with crops fitting to crop sequences from the southern part of Sweden. The calculations are based on three crop sequences concentrated more or less on bioenergy. The production calculations I've put together are based on calculations that I've got from an internet site called agriwise. In these calculations I've put in the numbers that I found out during my litterature study and some cost estimates that I've done my self because I couldn't find all the numbers I needed. Also during my litterature study I've found out about the biofules values as burning materials wich I used to estimate the producers price for the crops and I did some research about sewage sludge. Judging by the results of this study it would be most intresting for crop farmers in the surroundings of Örtofta to consider selling their crops as biofuels or at least sell the straw as it. The most profitable production calculations are those were you have cereal crops and sell the grain as usual and sell the straw to bioenergy and those were you sell the ray-wheat as whole crop to bioenergy. Something I haven't studied but I think would be very intresting is how much you can prioritize the straw. For example how low stubble height you can set with youre harvester. Will the increase of straw that you can sell cover the costs of a lower capacity on your harvester? I think that bioenergy can be the future for many farmers especially with todays increasing oilprices and peoples more and more environmental awareness.
