Figure 7

Contributions to uncertainty in the estimate of minimum ethanol selling price (MESP). Uncertainty in fermentation yields contributes approximately 30 % to the total uncertainty; uncertainty in enzymatic hydrolysis contributes approximately 60 % to the total uncertainty; and uncertainty in pretreatment and feedstock composition contribute approximately 10 %.
