Table 2 Feedstock productivity

From: Land-use change and greenhouse gas emissions from corn and cellulosic ethanol

Feedstock Crop yield (dry metric ton/ha) Ethanol productivity (L/ha)
Corn 7.9a 4,250 L/hab
Miscanthus 24c 6,190 L/had
Switchgrass 12c 3,200 L/had
Corn stover 4.1c 1,070 L/had
  1. a Yield calculated from [28] and 20% moisture content at harvest.
  2. b 344 L/dry metric ton [28].
  3. c From [24].
  4. d Assuming an ethanol yield of 317 L/dry metric ton [24].
