1. The generated material will be enzymatically hydrolyzed using commercial cellulases and fermented into ethanol using Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast. 2. A carbohydrate and ethanol mass balance will be set up around the incoming biomass and outgoing ethanol; this balance will be used to solve the process efficiency for conversion of biomass into ethanol.
