A mixed integer programming model was developed to estimate the delivered cost of woody biomass, including the costs associated with stumpage, bundling (if any), extraction, storage, loading and hauling, and chipping–grinding under different woody biomass handling systems. The model was designed to optimize a woody biomass based biofuel facility’s location with the objective of minimizing the total annual delivered cost of woody biomass under resource and operational constraints. The model was… CONTINUE READING
