Sensitivity analysis on the ethanol yield per hectare of sugarcane cultivation area considering: a percent allocation of available bagasse, b the enzyme dosage, c percent of xylose conversion to ethanol from the C5-liquor, d the conversion of the oligosaccharides in the enzymatic hydrolysate to ethanol. Black dotted line indicates baseline conditions which were selected based on experimental data presented in Table 2 and the assumptions presented in Table 3
