In the past few decades enormous research are going in the area of biofuel production due to fast depletion of petroleum product and several environmental issues biofuel such as ethanol emerged as alternative energy resource produced through fermentation process. Lignocellulosic biomass is considered as most economical, easily available and highly renewable natural resource in the agricultural rich countries. Technical advancement in past few decades provides an efficient way to use lignocelulosic biomass for biofuel production for sustainable energy requirement. Lignocellulosic biomass is used in the production of ethanol, which can be considered as an energy source alternative to petrol (fossil fuel). The conversion of lignocellulosic biomass into energy source involves mainly two process i.e. hydrolysis and pre-treatment of lignocellulosic biomass. Use of alternative energy sources can be an environmental friendly solution to meet our present challenges. Biofuel derived from renewable energy sources such as libnocellulossic biomass represent the clean fuel alternative to overcome the energy crisis globally in eco-friendly and sustainable manner. This review highlighted the recent research in the area of biofuel production using agricultural waste are its impact on the sustainable biofuel production.
