Abstract

Purpose of Review The paper focuses on the progress related to models and approaches for an optimal design and management of biomass supply chains. A literature review has been conducted, and previous review papers have been used as bases. Do most of the current models adopt the same decision level, mathematical methodology and type of objective of those identified by previous reviews? Are there any innovative approaches to revitalise the considered research topic? Recent Findings Most of the works published in 2017 and in early 2018 reflect the past literature reviews; regrettably, few relevant advances have been achieved in the recent period to face up the major gaps. Innovative works apply Life Cycle Assessment, Multi-Criteria Analysis, CyberGIS or Agent-Based approaches to biomass supply chain optimisation. Summary Future research should address, for instance, sustainability of biomass supply chains through a more comprehensive approach including economic, environmental, social and policy-related issues, integration of the decision levels to meet the needs of different stakeholders. . . . . . Keywords Biomass Supply chain Design Management Optimisation Simulation Introduction matical model to calculate the optimisation criteria (environ- mental, energetic and economic objectives), to better address The development of biomass supply chains is increasing
