MESP for the {C5 EtOH, 20% WIS, 96 h, 100% EHE} case. MESPs of 1G, 2G and 1G + 2G are plotted for (a) the case without leaves and (b) with leaves addition. For case definitions see Table 1. 1G, first generation; 2G, second generation; B, bagasse; B + L, bagasse with addition of leaves; C5 EtOH, pentose fermentation to ethanol; EHE, enzymatic hydrolysis efficiency; MESP, minimum ethanol selling price; WIS, water-insoluble solids.
