Valorization of Lignocellulosic Biomass to Value Added Products
The rapid growth in the global population has increased our dependence on fossil fuels. The increasing population requires more energy for economic and societal development, so they use non-renewable resources. Owing to this, global fossil fuel consumption has been increasing for the past few decades to foster the needs of a growing population. Following this unsustainable model of development has caused the depletion of fossil fuels at an alarming rate. The impact of unsustainable development is not limited to fossil fuel depletion. It has also resulted in climate change, global warming, and pollution. United Nations (UN) have considered this a grave issue and has put forward “The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) to reduce the impact of unsustainable growth on society . The UN has also urged every country to follow SDG to ensure sustainability at the global level. Apart from this, the United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP 27 conducted in Egypt in 2022 has laid down goals related to the reduction in emissions by 40% in Thailand within 2030 and following the Bio Circular Green Economy model for sustainable growth, climate change, biodiversity conversion and waste management.
