Therefore, although the cost of lignocellulosic biomass is far lower than that of sugar and starch crops, the cost of obtaining sugars from such materials for fermentation into bioethanol has historically been far too high to attract industrial interest. , 2011; Galbe and Zacchi, 2002). 4 2. , 2007 C. 1 Blaschek and Ezej, 2007 WEEDS SOLID WASTE FOREST RESIDUE NA, data not available. complex. Ethanol can be produced from lignocellulosic materials in various ways. The main difference between the process alternatives is the hydrolysis steps, which as mentioned previously, can be performed by dilute acid, concentrated acid or enzymatically.

The rationale for developing purpose-grown lignocellulosic crops for energy is that less intensive production techniques and poorer quality land can be used for these crops, thereby avoiding competition with food production on better quality land.

Lignocellulosic Feedstocks The major components of lignocellulosic feedstocks are cellulose and hemicellulose that can be converted to sugars through a series of thermochemical and biological processes and eventually fermented to bioethanol, other solvent biofuel or biogas. g. crop residues and sugarcane bagasse), forest residues, herbaceous and woody energy 38 2. BIOENERGY RESEARCH: AN OVERVIEW ON TECHNOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENTS AND BIORESOURCES crops. There are three principal technological end points for bioenergy crops: (1) conversion to liquid fuels, (2) combustion (alone or in combination with fossil fuels) to produce heat, steam, or electricity, and (3) gasification to simpler gaseous products that can have various uses.
