EAS 199 C1-F HW2 Quantitative Model September 27th, 2016 Michael Cunico Logan Tuczak Josh Lewis Ethanol: a. Model Definition (acres cropland)(gallons ethanol/acre corn)/(gallon equiv.) ● Quantitative Model: % = Annual U.S. Gasoline Demand (gal.) ● Assumptions: ○ All the corn goes toward fuel ○ Crop rotation is abandoned and only corn is grown ○ All of the kernels are healthy enough to be processed ● Variables: ○ Cropland: all U.S. farms that are dedicated to growing corn ● Variable Values: ○ 336,613,500 acres of cropland ○ 409.5 gallons of ethanol per acre of corn ○ 1.415 gallon equivalent ○ 1.41215E+11 annual U.S. gasoline demand Biodiesel from Soy: b. Model Definition ● Quantitative Model: (acres cropland)(gallons of biodiesel/acre soy)/(gallon equivalent) annual U.S. gasoline demand (gal) ● Assumptions: ○ Only existing cropland that produces soy ○ Annual U.S. gasoline demand remains the same ○ The ratio of gallons of biodiesel produced per acre of soy does not improve ● Variables: ○ Acres of cropland: All U.S. farms that are dedicated to producing soy ○ Gallons of biodiesel produced per acre of soy ○ Gallon equivalent ○ Annual U.S. gasoline demand (gallons) ● Variable Values: ○ 70 million acres of cropland dedicated to soy ○ 0.9600 gallon equivalent ○ 71.99 billion gallons per year ○ 53.5 gallons of biodiesel produced per acre of soy Biodiesel from Algae: c. Model Definition ● Quantitative Model: U.S. demand of biodiesel/year Biodiesel production/acre of algae pond ● Assumptions: ○ U.S. demand of biodiesel per year remains the same ○ Efficiency of oil extraction from algae remains the same ○ Only existing algae ponds and naturally occurring algae sources are used ● Variables: ○ U.S. demand of biodiesel per year ○ Biodiesel production per acre of algae pond ● Variable Values: ○ 1,205 million gallons of biodiesel consumed per year ○ 3500 gallons of biodiesel produced per acre of algae pond Synthetic Fuel from Coal: d. Model Definition ● Quantitative Model:tons of Annual U.S. Gasoline Demand (gal.)Years Lefted/ton of coal) ● Assumptions: ○ We use all of the coal that we know of in the Earth’s crust ○ We do not discover any more coal reserves ○ We use the technology that we are currently using to produce this fuel ○ All modern processes and transporting remains the same ○ The annual U.S. gasoline demand remains the same ● Variables: ○ Tons of coal in reserve: The amount of coal that is in the known reserves in the Earth’s crust (measured in tons) ○ Gallons of gasoline produced/ton of coal: The amount of gasoline that is produced in the manufacturing of converting coal into gasoline using one ton of coal ○ Annual U.S. Gasoline Demand (gal.): The amount of gasoline that is demanded and used in the United States in a year ● Variable Values: ○ There are 840 billion tons of coal left in the reserves ○ Approximately 81.5 gallons of gasoline are produced using one ton of coal ○ 140 billion gallons of gasoline are consumed in the United States each year (although this value changes from year to year and is currently on a slight decline)
