The project implementation is to be carried in the University of Greenwich. The University wishes to use glycerol as the biofuel to be used for generating the combined heat and power (CHP). The main objective of this essay is to illustrate on the process to be followed when sourcing this bio-fuel to the final consumption by the university.The many risks that are involved in the implementation of this project will also be discussed. The end users and the decision makers will also need information regarding the best risk management strategies to be created in order to mitigate the risks involved. The essay will, therefore, specify the supply chain risks to be countered and how they will be mitigated. The essay will also touch on the benefits this project brings in terms of both the environmental sustainability and energy efficiency and sustainability.The figure above shows a series of five processes that are followed during the production of the combined heat and power from glycerol. The first stage involves the retrieval of the glycerol from the feedstocks. The feedstock choice is determinant of many other factors. The second stage involves the movement of the acquired glycerol from the collection point to the production point.For a very long time, before the evolving of the new technology, knowledge on the existence of glycerol was well advanced to a lot of people. According to Sims crude glycerol can be derived from a variety of feedstocks.
