In order to determine the potential impact of the biofuel industry on employment opportunities in Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) economies, this model was built to capture the input costs of operating an ethanol or biodiesel plant and translate them into employment figures. Such figures include not only the people involved in operating the plant but those involved in supplying it with feedstock and for feedstock transportation.
