ABSTRACT
Poland as an integrated EU member is obliged to standardize Polish law to EU regulations. Such obligation creates favorable conditions for the development of renewable energy sources. Therefore Poland has to implement international obligations in order to protect the air and to reduce the emission of carbon dioxide. The article focuses on the production of biofuels from oil plants (oilseed rape). The preparation of the production is associated with the calculation of the profitability of investment. Such calculation would be the main premise whether the project is financially efficient or not. The main thesis of the article focuses on such aspects of profitability calculations, which would be helpful for investors to make a right economic choice.
