The improvement of renewable and sustainable lignocellulosic biofuels is presently receiving around the globe cognizance and funding. regardless of many years of analysis, there stay major demanding situations to be conquer ahead of those biofuels might be produced in huge volumes at aggressive costs. One drawback is the inability of effective and reasonable catalytic platforms to dissolve and hydrolyze polysaccharides into sugars. those sugars are then fed to microrganisms and fermented into biofuels. the cost of those catalysts, be they organic, thermochemical, or chemical in nature, characterize one of many greatest bills within the conversion approach. there are various catalytic schemes, every one with their very own benefits and drawbacks, to be had. This e-book provides a common but large assessment of the main promising strategies and the spectrum of biomass pretreatment, enzymes, chemical catalysts, and hybrid methods of hydrolyzing biomass into fermentable sugars. it's the in basic terms at the moment to be had publication that compares the biochemical, chemical, and thermochemical conversion procedures to biofuel production.
