ABSTRACT
The purpose of this paper is to quantify the economic impact of variation in alcohol yield from wheat grain used as the feedstock in the emerging UK bioethanol industry. Analysis of alcohol yield of 84 Recommended List samples shows that the annual cost saving from high alcohol yield wheat compared with low alcohol yield wheat could exceed £3 million per annum or £34 per tonne of wheat processed in a plant with a capacity of 100k tonnes of wheat per year.
