Nowadays, mankind is facing several environmental challenges such as climate change, pollutions, etc. In order to create a more sustainable future, an adequate waste management system is necessary. One of the major solid waste sources is biomass, which have the potential to be converted into energy and several kinds of value-added products. Therefore, it is suggested to develop a multi-biomass corridor in order to promote a global sustainable development of renewable energy. However, this large-scale problem normally requires longer computational duration due to its complexity. This paper develops a "Decomposition Approach" to simplify such problem and the effectiveness of the methodology has been illustrated by applying it to a case study in a state with abundant biomass, Johor.
