A review of production of bioethanol from agricultural wastes
Aditya Shukla, Sandeep Kumar Verma and Akanksha Shukla
The demand for ethanol is steadily rising worldwide as a result of the world's growing industrialization and population expansion. Because their primary purpose is for food and feed, conventional crops like corn and sugarcane cannot produce enough bioethanol to meet the world's need. For this reason, lignocellulosic materials like agricultural wastes are good feed stocks for the synthesis of bioethanol. Agricultural wastes are plentiful, renewable, and inexpensive. Though the process has a number of difficulties and restrictions, including the processing and transportation of biomass and the need for effective pre-treatment techniques for the complete delignification of Ligno-cellulosics, bioethanol from agricultural waste has the potential to be a promising technology. The efficiency of the entire process can be increased by using appropriate pre-treatment techniques to raise the amounts of fermentable sugars following enzymatic saccharification. To make the entire process economically viable, new fermentation technologies are required for the conversion of both xylose and glucose to ethanol. This article discusses the various technologies that can be used to produce bioethanol from agricultural waste.
