To identify the factors and variables involved in modeling second-generation biomass resources in Dufferin, Peel, Perth, Waterloo and Wellington County.
Design a model using a GIS-based approach to estimate the average yields of biomass within the study area.
Apply the model to determine the quantity and spatial density of biomass resources available for biofuel production.
Determine whether siting a biofuel refinery within City of Guelph boundaries would be feasible within 50 or 100 kilometer service distances.
Assess the strengths and weaknesses of the model.
