The current energy crisis has drawn much attention to cellulosic ethanol, but the chemical engineering system that produces this alternative fuel, called the biorefinery, has not yet been modeled with one of its primary feedstock suppliers, the agricultural system. Combining cropping and animal systems with the biorefinery in a single integrated model will allow environmental and economic analysis of biomass, bioenergy, co-product, and fertilizer production....
