Abstract Bio-oil, produced through fast pyrolysis, can act as an intermediate, which can be further upgraded to biofuels. Fast pyrolysis is done in either a centralized or a decentralized (mobile pyrolysis system [MPS]) system. In a centralized system, biomass is transported to a plant to produce bio-oil, which is upgraded in the same unit, while in a decentralized system, the mobile plant is moved to the forest to produce bio-oil, which is transported to an upgrading facility. The objective of this study is to develop supply chain models and conduct a techno-economic assessment of bio-oil production in these two systems using the developed models. For both syst...
