This work presents a robust optimization approach for the synthesis of integrated biorefineries that able to handle uncertainties of product demands. To convert biomass into value-added products, ranging from biofuels to specialty chemicals, an integrated processing facility known as integrated biorefineries is needed. Due to the high degree of integration with various biomass conversion and synthesis technologies, integrated biorefineries are able to produce multiple products efficiently. Uncertainties in final product demands and its association with...
