    Abstract: Biofuels have been identified as suitable in combating climate change as a result of green gas emissions from fossil fuels. Bioethanol is a biofuel from lignocellulosic biomass is considered a viable renewable energy alternative to fossil fuels. However, the recalcitrance of biomass feedstocks due to the presence of lignin, creates a barrier to glu... Show More
