From: Effects of production and market factors on ethanol profitability for an integrated first and second generation ethanol plant using the whole sugarcane as feedstock

Figure 8

Effect of variation in the cost of sugarcane and leaves on MESP. The sensitivity analysis of the feedstock cost is performed on 1G + 2G MESP for the {B + L, 20% WIS, 96 h, 250% EHE} cases and on 1G MESP for the {B + L} case. For case definitions see Table 1. 1G, first generation; 2G, second generation; B + L, bagasse with addition of leaves; EHE, enzymatic hydrolysis efficiency; MESP, minimum ethanol selling price; WIS, water-insoluble solids.
