Supply Chain Network Design for Biomass-based Energy Carrier Production

Stefan Rotter

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingsConference contribution


Increasing the share of renewable energy sources is at the top of most European countries’ agenda. Among others, this aim induces discussions about how to boost bioenergy produc-tion by converting biogenic residues into energy carriers in a profitable way. In doing so, a facility location-allocation model that designs the supply chain network for biomass-based energy carrier production in Upper Austria is set up. In the baseline scenario, the applied mixed-integer programming model yields a profitable solution which locates one conversion plant in the center of Upper Austria.
