The depletion of natural resources, petroleum products and rising prices of raw materials tend to look for fuels from renewable energy sources and biofuels. Biobutanol is a very attractive energy source because it is non-hygroscopic, does not cause corrosion and has a higher calorific value. The basic problem of wider use of biobutanol depends on its production with sufficient efficiency and this in turn is limited by separation of butanol from fermentation broth. The present research work is concerned with the production of Butanol and synthesis of such a process that results in highest purification fold and also minimizes the cost of the downstream processing. Thus, the process involves 1) production of Biobutanol from Lignocellulosic wastes by Clostridium acetobutylicum  2) study of different separation processes to separate butanol from fermentation broth and identify a  economically viable process.

Keywords: Biobutanol, Lignocellulosic wastes, Fermentation, Distillation, Pervaporation
