ACS Symposium Series; American Chemical Society: Washington, DC, 2002. 43 (4). Each shows that biomass can be converted into ethanol at costs that could compete in the open market, but because a summary of each has been presented previously (5), the former two will not be discussed here. However, a few key points are presented below about the advanced technology study because it is relevant to other products that could be made in a biorefinery. The most expensive processing steps for converting biomass to ethanol or other products are pretreatment, which contributes about one-third of the cost, and biological conversion of cellulose to glucose and fermentation of glucose and other sugars to ethanol, collectively representing almost 40% of the total (4).

Internal equity financing is possible for large companies, but hurdle rates can be too high to accommodate contingencies and other margins for first-of-a-kind technology. Project financing offers lower rates of return for debt holders, but the demands on project certainty and longevity are significant. In any financial arrangement, uncertainty and risk for biocommodity projects must be minimized (20). This can require that contracts be in place for an adequate supply of biomass to the plant over much of its financial life.

37 derived from sustainable sources instead of the fossil sources commonly assumed in such studies. This is analogous to the fact that tankers burn petroleum to cross the oceans and still deliver much more than they consume at a low cost. Thus, provided the crops employed have little impact on soils, biomass-derived products such as ethanol are renewable. While bioethanol clearly can be made with little, i f any, fossil fuel inputs, the energy balance for some polymeric products has been shown to be less favorable than for fossil fuel options (75, 16).
