Title : Refinery Modeling for Argonne National Laboratory
Publication Date : November 30, 2017
Authors : J. Jenkins, V. DiVita
Abstract : With support of the U.S. Department of Energy, Argonne National Laboratory is conducting a
comprehensive well-to-wheels (WTW) analysis for the Fuels Working Group (FWG) of US DRIVE
— a partnership between the US government and auto and energy industries — to examine
energy and GHG effects of producing fuels with higher octane ratings produced with various
gasoline blending stocks and renewable blending components for use in vehicle engines
developed for the new fuel properties. Understanding changes to petroleum refining activities to
produce such fuels is key to this WTW analysis. Linear programming (LP) modeling is an
appropriate technique for simulating these activities. Jacobs Consultancy was retained to design
and conduct various LP modeling cases with its proprietary LP model.
