ABSTRACT

Bio-fuel has been a source of energy that human beings have used since ancient times.
Increasing the use of bio-fuels for energy generation purposes is of particular interest
nowadays because they allow mitigation of greenhouse gases, provide means of energy
independence and may even offer new employment possibilities. Bio-fuels are being
investigated as potential substitutes for current high pollutant fuels obtained from
conventional sources. The aim of the project is the production of low cost ethanol by using
lignocellulosic materials basically the agro wastes like sugarcane bagasse, rice husk, wheat
straw, corn fiber, crop residues, grasses and other materials like saw dust, wood chips, solid
animal waste etc.
