Idea

Creation of central storage for European biofuel customers (existing and new)
European winter storage
All math and figures are taken from personal experience obtained during last year
Pellets sales market- Europe
Pricing policy of sales - summer 90€ winter 110€ Big Bags
Purchase of pellets - summer 72€, winter 100€
Income concept - to buy pellets in summer, to sale in winter
Value of the product: Any Certified volume available in stock is sold in winter
Turnover: 330000€ - first season, 800000€- second season. Turnover depends only on how early the purchase of pellets began and the availability of money supply.
Dead season for biofuel : June - August, as the price falls.
Payback of the project 2-3 seasons.

150,000 – 250,000 storage
30,000- 50,000 refinement depending on the condition of the roof
18,000 forklift
5,000 cameras, doors, alarm
1,000 weight checker
288,000 Purchase of pellets including VAT
Working staff : Forklift driver 160€ /month, packers
Total : 342,000 – 492,000
Risks and advantages
1. No salary risks (very important)
2. Poorly made roof can soak 2-3% of the total volume of pellets stock
3. 100% claimed goods
4. It is possible to open separate SP for removal of external risks.
5. Theft of pellets (unlikely, as everything is in big bags) impossible to take away by ordinary car, only control persons have the keys.
6. Poor quality products are excluded by 2 factors: 1- verified suppliers, 2- incoming inspection
7. Large customer base
8. Deliberate arson (decision - to insure against fire)
