Enormous amount of biomass is depositing each day in the environment. The agriculture countries can make use of such resources for various useful purposes. Bioethanol is one of the important commodities which can be produced by using biomass. Bioethanol can be considered as future fuel which has the potential to replace fossil fuels. Bioethanol is in fact a cheap source of energy and can help in clean environment management. However in few cases consideration are needed to overcome the anomalies of using some specific biomass resources which can affect our food reserves. A brief survey of the various important aspects involved in bioethanol production is done in this report to grasp the basic concept of bioethanol production from biomass. Cellulosic materials are abundant and prominent feedstock for cheap ethanol production. Ethanol from biological feedstock has emerged as a promising alternative for the generation of energy from renewable sources in order to mitigate the damages caused by the gas emissions associated to the consumption of fossil fuels. In many countries, ethanol is already being produced at industrial scale from different biological raw materials. However, there are some technical issues related to this process that need to be addressed and one of the major problems is the high heat requirements which makes this process less competitive against well-established fuels.
Keywords: biorefinary biomass sources, ethanol production.
