This work proposes a spatially explicit Mixed Integer Linear Programming (MILP) modelling framework representing the dynamic evolution of a bioethanol supply chain (SC) under increasing biofuel demand and GHG emissions savings over the time. Key features of the proposed framework comprise: i) the incorporation of available set-aside rural surfaces ...
