Default Are Cheap Enzymes the Holy Grail of Cellulosic Ethanol?

All our eyes should be on Novozymes rather than on companies such as Coskata or Mascoma, when it comes to cellulosic ethanol. Why?

I strongly think that the best chance to produce cellulosic ethanol at competitive costs will be to have really low cost cellulase enzymes. And it looks like cheap enzymes might be available sometime soon in future, through interesting innovations (for instance, see this post on Cheap Cellulosic Ethanol using Immobilised Enzymes....

What is your opinion on the possibility of having cheap cellulase enzymes within the next three years (say, at about half the cost that it is right now. It right now costs about 40 cents a gallon).
