Feedstock Development

Feedstock and Ecosystem Service Modeling Program

This program is building tools to identify the best and most sustainable feedstocks for any given location. This is achieved by the development of state-of-the art models allowing projections of yields, yield stability and ecosystem services of second-generation biofuel feedstocks, while at the same time providing the largest database of actual measurements of these emergent crops.


Regional Biofuels Modeling

The group will synthesize agri-ecological data in a framework centered on forecasting, quantifying uncertainty, and scaling spatially and temporally. First they will develop biofuel crop ecosystems models and then they will apply those models at a regional scale to predict how crop suitability relates to environmental variability, ecosystem services and land-use change.
