Results for 2G MESP for the {48 h, 100% EHE} cases. 2G MESP is presented as sum of cost items and as function of pentose utilization, feedstock and WIS. For case definitions see Table 1. 2G, second generation; B, bagasse; B + L, bagasse with addition of leaves; C5 biogas, biogas production from pentoses; C5 EtOH, pentose fermentation to ethanol; EHE, enzymatic hydrolysis efficiency; MESP, minimum ethanol selling price; WIS, water-insoluble solids.
