Abstract: This paper addresses the design and planning of integrated biorefineries supply chain under uncertainty. A two-stage stochastic mixed integer linear programming (MILP) model is proposed considering the presence of uncertainty in the residual lignocellulosic biomass availability and technology conversion factors. Nevertheless, when the scenario tree approach is applied to a large real world case study, it generates a computationally complex problem to solve. To address this challenge the present paper proposes the improvement of the scenario tree approach through the use of two scenario reduction methods. The results illustrate the impact of the uncertain parameters over the network configuration of a real case when compared with the deterministic solution. Both scenario reduction methods appear promising and should be further explored when solving large scenario trees problems.
