  • Optimizing energy consumption for aerobic bioconversion, wastewater treatment, onsite energy generation, and utilities stages.
  • Identifying promising avenues for reducing natural gas inputs to the boiler, which is relatively less influential to the minimum selling price but could largely reduce GHG emissions.
  • Integrating the recovery and separation decision tree, which allows user to choose an economic recovery option for their products among the several possible recovery and separation options.
  • Adding more functionality to biomass feedstock supply chain, including soil organic carbon sequestration, field-to-biorefinery supply distance, biomass yield, and feedstock forms at the biorefinery gate such as silage, bales, and pellets.
  • Adding more biofuels and bioproducts, including but not limited to methyl ketones, and indigoidine (blue dye). Updating carbon footprint of process chemicals assuming that those will produce utilizing the Zero-Carbon Grid Electricity.
  • Improving accuracy of greenhouse gas footprint calculations for simple sugar feedstocks.
  • Updating the water footprint of simple sugar feedstocks.
  • Incorporating water withdrawal footprint model.
