Biodiesel Business Plans: Writing a Biodiesel Business Plan

Written by Dave Lavinsky

In order to write a successful biodiesel business plan, Growthink’s business plan consultants suggest that you factor in several important trends in the biodiesel industry and broader economy and geopolitical environment. What affect will these important trends have on your new biodiesel enterprise?

    • The unprecedented rise of oil and other global commodity prices
    • A growing awareness and concern over global warming
    • America’s pursuit of energy independence and government incentives to achieve this goal
    • Increasing interest among investors for clean energy investing opportunities
    • The recent explosion of the biodiesel and alternative energy industry


Critical Biodiesel Business Planning Questions

To write a convincing biodiesel business plan and successfully launch your new biodiesel venture, you must determine answers to the following questions:

    • What is the true market demand for your type of biodiesel?
    • How will you prove the feasibility of your biodiesel venture?
    • What kind of financing (e.g. debt, equity, etc.) will you need, and how much?
    • What sources will you seek capital from?
    • What relevant experience does your management team have, which you can leverage to impress investors?
    • What strategic partnerships will you forge?
    • How will you market and distribute your biodiesel?
    • What are your future financial projections?
    • What is your “exit strategy”?
