Thus, the primary feedstock is free and may even have a negative cost if the distiller was having to pay to treat the liquid before dumping it. On the minus side, the maximum amount of recoverable fuel is very small -- my rough guess is that it's a few barrels of fuel per hundred barrels of whiskey. Thus, it may not be worth the equipment costs.
