Abstract : An interactive, web-based tool was developed to streamline the process design for biofuel pathways that the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) is developing. The tool utilizes the latest life-cycle analysis (LCA) data in the Greenhouse gases, Regulated Emissions, and Energy use in Technologies (GREET) model developed by Argonne National Laboratory (Argonne National Laboratory, 2021). Itprovides techno-economic analysis (TEA) modelers with a interative interface that generates real-time LCA results based on life-cycle inventory (LCI) data and generates useful insights into key emissions drivers. Economic implications of the LCA results are also included in the tool. Overall, the tool aims to assist TEA researchers with the development of economically viable and environmentally beneficial biofuel technologies. This manual introduces the interface and analysis capabilities of the tool.
