Assume you have been asked to evaluate an investment in capital equipment for the production of biofuels. The machine will cost $215,000 and it will last 10 years (useful and depreciation lifespans). Using straight-line depreciation, the salvage value for the investment is $0. You expect the equipment to have a terminal value of $20,000 at the end of the investment period. The machine has an annual maintenance cost of $6,000. Your marginal tax rate is 30%; remember that you get to keep (1-m) for everything other than the depreciation shield on an after-tax basis (it’s simply m * depreciation shield). Your after tax-cost of capital (discount rate) is 9.5%. Labor costs in the production of biofuels are $17,500/year.  The machine will produce 25,500 units of biofuel annually that will be sold at $2.50/unit.
