Use of opportunity fuels can provide cost-effective business deals for utilities. Successful use of these fuels is based on meeting fuel supply needs of the utility. These needs are specific to the particular power plant under consideration and can present significant challenges. Plant needs can be determined through an evaluation process based on a common set of fuel supply requirements. Results of this evaluation identify what is required for a successful fuel-supply business deal. The cost-benefits from this evaluation process are helpful in determining if the opportunity fuel will support a win-win business deal between the fuel supplier and the fuel user. This paper presents a framework for this evaluation process followed by case study reviews. This evaluation process can be helpful to fuel suppliers in understanding how to meet power plant fuel-supply needs and to power plant operators in clearly defining the needs that opportunity fuel suppliers must meet.
