In line with the requirements for sustainable economies and clean environments, cellulose-based biofuels have recently received tremendous attention both in industry and academic communities worldwide. Alternative and renewable fuels derived from lignocellulosic biomass offer the potential to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and mitigate global climate change. The world, therefore, is on the verge of an unprecedented increase in the production and use of biofuels. However, in industry… CONTINUE READING
