Kern part of successful DOE BETO proposal

Excited to announce a new project funded by the U.S. Department of Energy Bioenergy Technologies Office with collaborators at Colorado State (lead PI is Jason Quinn). We will develop a modeling toolset for identifying promising combinations of production pathways and performance targets for bio-energy and coproduct systems. The work will leverage agent based modeling for the optimization of biofuel production pathways with geo-spatial resolution and multi-parameter optimization that includes cost, energy, water, and emissions criteria.
