The present work presented the application of a spatio-temporal techno-economic supply chain model for the modeling of near-term bioenergy strategy to meet the emission target through the co-firing of biomass with coal. Multi-level solid biofuel production capacities for the purpose of scaling up the maximum co-firing share in coal plants were incorporated into the studied supply chain configuration. Scenarios related to the near-term CO2 emission target were developed and analyzed. The findings have shown that higher commitment of emission reduction will impact the choices of the biomass pre-treatment technologies and the scales needed. Co-firing is capable of contributing toward the achievement of more ambitious emission reduction than the targeted but highlighting the need for policy to financially supporting the near-term deployment.
