The cost of bioethanol production from wheat was found to be very sensitive to the price of wheat. When wheat is purchased at a typical current UK price of £115/tonne, the net cost of ethanol was calculated to be 38.3p per litre, but growing wheat on set aside at £45/tonne could result in a net ethanol cost of 21p/litre.
