Integrated biorefinery is a process facility that converts biomass into value added products with maximum energy and material recovery. It has the ability to provide strong, self-dependent, sustainable and environmentally benign alternatives for the production of bulk and fine chemicals. However, there is a need for a methodology capable of evaluating the integrated processes in order to identify the optimal products possible to be ...
