ABSTRACT
There is a general understanding that the potential and prospects of bioenergy in the world depend heavily on advances in cellulosic research. It is however expected that any significant progress on that front will be driven by major technological innovations. Advances in feedstock development and conversion processes will indeed propel the bioenergy industry into a well-secured and competitive future. A diversified feedstock source will provide sustainability well beyond our current fossil-fuel market. Based on the industry estimates, the present energy sources dominated by mineral fuels though limited, are predicted to last well into the next decades. Therefore, turning low-value cellulosic materials into high energy products will maintain the viability of the bienergy industry, as these materials are renewable and abundantly available.
