Abstract

In this paper we propose a novel mathematical framework for the study of biorefinery networks. The framework is based on a natural decomposition of the biorefinery network in two sub-problems: a supply of intermediates and a demand of intermediates. The two sub-problems can be optimized independently of each other and their solutions are later coordinated to yield the optimal feasible biorefinery complex. Based on this separability, a computer aided computational environment that emulates the proposed framework is presented.
