IBSAL is a dynamic simulation model of the connections existing between feedstock producers, biorefinery locations and the requisite storage and distribution systems. The model is primarily focused on the front end of the biofuels supply chain at the local level. The local data sources that are inputs include field area, dry matter, production equipment, soil and biomass moisture, weather conditions, transportation networks and associated costs. The model was developed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
