Request for proposal: QUANTIFYING THE VALUE OF PROCESSING U.S. SOYBEAN OIL COMPARED WITH SOUTH AMERICAN ORIGINS(264 KB)

Email: RFP@ussec.org

Anecdotally, and through prior USSEC research, it has been noted that oil from U.S. soybeans has a lower cost of refining vs. soybean oil from South American origins. Many refiners have noted the particularly lower cost with bleaching U.S. SBO due to its more “neutral” color, FFA’s, lower NOL, and other advantages have been noted as well.

This RFP seeks to quantify this advantage on a per metric ton basis so as to provide international soybean oil buyers with a more holistic view when purchasing soybeans/soybean oil. The study should provide tools to both crushers and stand-alone SBO refiners, that have a choice between sourcing U.S. and alternative origin soybeans/SBO.

Please submit your proposal no later than 5:00 pm Central Time on Friday, August 19, 2022.
