Abstract
Abundant sources of oil palm based biomass provide an impetus for the sustainable generation of bio-ethanol. Previously used as fuel to generate steam at the mills, the waste inflicts a severe impact towards the protection of the environment. Conversion of bioethanol from biomass, especially from empty fruit bunches (EFBs) offers a simple yet effective treatment of waste from the palm industry. One of these options is the bio-conversion of lignocelluloses to bioethanol using acid hydrolysis and fermentation. EFB is one of the candidates for renewable energy to fulfil the requirement of clean carbon emission. The development of lignocellulosic-bioethanol as an alternative energy provides an opportunity and incentive to generate some Carbon Emission Reduction (CERs) credits.
