Product Description
CUBE 2.0 was designed to facilitate examination of the sources and magnitude of uncertainties in GHG emissions resulting from cultivation, preparation, and delivery of biomass feedstocks and to allow exploration of the sensitivity of net emissions to these various uncertainties. Included are emissions associated with corn grain, corn stover, switchgrass, mixed prairie biomass, and hybrid poplar and two biomass residues: forest residue and mill residue. This model is an update to the CUBE 1.0 model released in March 2010.
