Faster and better development of biorefinery processes through modelling

In his dissertation, Senior Scientist and M.Sc. (Eng.) Kristian Melin of VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland has developed a modelling and evaluation method for identifying which biorefinery processes – of those being considered for development –will use raw materials most efficiently, reduce greenhouse gas emissions the most, or be most economical. The method can also accelerate the development of new bio-economic processes from laboratory to production scale.
