Reduction in fossil fuel consumption by using alternate sources of energy is a major challenge facing mankind in the coming decades. Bioethanol production using lignocellulosic biomass is the most viable option for addressing this challenge. Industrial bioconversion of lignocellulosic biomass, though possible now, is not economically viable due to presence of barriers that escalate the cost of production. As cellulose and hemicellulose are the major constituents of terrestrial biomass, which is… 
New Paradigm in Degradation of Lignocellulosic Biomass and Discovery of Novel Microbial Strains
TLDR
The cellulase-/hemicellulase-rich preparations produced by growing developed strains on inexpensive agro-residues as carbon sources (under SSF and/or SmF) find potential applications in biorefineries, paper and pulp industry, animal feed, food and beverages industry and textile and detergent industry, making global business of USD 800 million per year.
