Lignocellulosic biomass contains abundant cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin. Ethanol production, which utilizes cellulosic and hemicellulosic fractions of the lignocellulosic biomass, is obtained from the transformation of fermentable sugar. In this case, other fiber portions of biomass like lignin can be considered as byproducts during the conversion process, and these byproducts generally are used to produce octane booster fuels, bio-based products, and chemical productions.
