Bioethanol is one of the main biofuels currently used as a petroleum-substitute in transport applications. However, conflicts over food supply and land use have made its production and utilisation a controversial topic. Second generation bioalcohol production technology, based on (bio)chemical conversion of non-food lignocellulose, offers potential advantages over existing, energy-intensive bioethanol production processes. Food vs. fuel pressures may be reduced by utilising a wider range of lignocellulosic biomass feedstocks, including energy crops, cellulosic residues, and, particularly, wastes. Bioalcohol production

"Fossil fuels were in the last century the main source of fuels and raw materials for the standard life pattern of modern society. Their depletion together with huge environmental damage to earth derived from their combustion turn the change to renewable raw materials an urgent goal. This conversion is now underway and it requires a big effort to adapt materials Nature designed for specific purposes to fit in others. Evidences emerge that goals such as cellulosic ethanol are more difficult
