Abstract

Biofuels have emerged to be a great alternative not only due to depleting fossil fuels and their elevated costs but also due to the increasing emission of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. Lignocellulosic biomass is promising because of their energy efficiency and ease of availability at low cost, as non-edible agricultural waste. The presence of structural complexity and composition, biomass offers resistance to the whole process of biofuel production. Due to this, several pretreatment methods, such as physical, chemical as well as biological among others, have been introduced by scientists that are efficient in nature. Saccharification involves enzymatic hydrolysis of cellulose and gives high yield at low cost, which is then followed by fermentation. Different combined strategies of the pretreatment method and microorganisms for the saccharification and fermentation can lead to great process efficiency and output. This review illustrates several pretreatment methods, their various advantages and disadvantages, and different ways of saccharification and fermentation for biofuel production.
