35 per liter. Lignocellulosic biomass costs are highly feedstock dependent (waste wood and paper costs will vary widely depending on locality and transport costs). Lignocellulose-to-ethanol production costs would be expected to become lower in the future as new technology improves the overall conversion processes. Biomass feedstock costs represent the predominant expenditure in bioethanol production, with first-generation feedstocks generally 50–80 % of total costs, while for lignocelluloses bioethanol processes, the feedstock costs are only ~40 % of total costs (Petrou and Pappis 2009).

2000), charcoal adsorption (Chandel et al. 2007), ion exchange (Nilvebrant 2001), detoxification with laccase (Martin et al. 2002; Chandel et al. 2007), and biological detoxification (Lopez et al. 2004). The detoxification of acid hydrolyzates has been shown to improve their fermentability; however, the cost is often higher than the benefits achieved (Palmqvist and HahnHagerdal 2000; von Sivers et al. 1994). Dilute acid hydrolysis is carried out in two stages—First-stage and two-stage. Enzymatic hydrolysis using cellulases does not generate inhibitors, and the enzymes are very specific for cellulose.

Both production costs and market value of these products are complex. In corn-based ethanol plants, the stillage (20 % protein) is very valuable as animal feed. 5 Recirculation of Process Stream The water consumption is reduced by recirculating process streams for use in the washing and hydrolysis steps (Palmqvist and Hahn-Hagerdal 2000). Recirculating part of the dilute ethanol stream from the fermenter can increase the ethanol concentration in the feed to the distillation stage. However, computer simulations have shown that recirculation of streams leads to the accumulation of nonvolatile inhibitory compounds (Galbe and Zacchi 1992; Palmqvist et al.
