Introduction The sources of energy in the world majorly classified in to two types: renewable energy sources and non-renewable energy sources. , Solar energy, biomass energy, wind energy, tidal energy, hydro energy, and geothermal energy falls under renewable sources which are generated directly from the nature like the sun, rain, wind, tides, and it is possible to generate it over and over whenever it is needed and they are non-exhaustive.1 Whereas, non-renewable energy sources include natural gas, coal, oil and nuclear energy which are generated from ancient animal or plant remains or fossils and they are exhaustive. The major advantage of non-renewable energy sources is that they are readily available, easy to use and also economical to transform one non-renewable energy type to another. On the other hand, the most important disadvantage of non-renewable energy sources is that they are limited and will…show more content…
In recent times, renewable energy has been considered as an alternative to alleviate the growing global environmental consequences of greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuel production and consumptioon. Biofuels are an attractive alternative to gasoline. Renewable bio-sources such as lignocellulosic biomass (LCB) offer a cleaner, sustainable and affordable alternative for raw materials for various applications including bioethanol production. In this regard, the agro crop residues being the most abundant source of carbon in nature have significantly helped to alleviate global warming and balance the growing global energy demands. International Energy Outlook (2010) states that the renewable energy is projected to be the fastest rising energy source in the world because the use of renewable energy like biomass creates an energy production cycle without CO2.1, , , ,
