Abstract:

Lignocellulosic biomass bioethanol production, commonly referred to as Second Generation biofuels, using agricultural residues, forest residues, energy feedstocks, municipalities, and other waste crop solids is considered as a promising alternative energy source in order to minimize reliance on limited fossil sources, greenhouse gas emissions, and environmental pollutions. Bioethanol from food based materials may lead to ‘‘food vs fuel” conflict with the increase of world population. Corn and sugar based ethanol are promising substitute to gasoline production in transportation sector, are not sufficient to replace global fossil fuel consumption each year. Lignocellulosic biomass serves as a potential source for the production of second generation bioethanol. The present paper represents an overview on the bioethanol production from different substrates. It reviews information about current practices and also suggests future prospects.
