The economic modelling has been carried out using the NNFCC's Calculator, developed by The Andersons Centre.

The tool has not been used to determine capital costs and project viability as this is dependent on site specific factors relating to scale, access and existing infrastructure.

Capital costs have been estimated based on stakeholder engagement, understanding and involvement in current projects and previously documented evidence.
