Summary Increasing fossil fuel consumption has led to concerns regarding energy security, depleting energy reserves, price increases and global climate change. Alternative renewable energy is a potential replacement for fossil fuel, but relies on the availability of large amounts of biomass. Lignocellulosic biofuel is produced from lignocellulosic feedstock, which is a carbon reserve available in abundance and can potentially serve as a sustainable biofuel. The cost and efficiency of biofuel production from lignocellulosic material needs to be improved through technology development before it will be widely adopted.... This project optimises pretreatment, enzyme hydrolysis and fermentation steps for the conversion of waste hemp (Cannabis sativa) into biofuel
