43] Pure plant oil stems from dedicated crops such as rapeseed, soybean, palm and sunflower seeds. Animal fats are attractive feedstocks for biodiesel because their cost is lower than that of vegetal oil. [47] Use of waste vegetable oil or animal fats is an effective method of recycling daily wastes. Sustainable and economic production of biodiesel from palm oil has proven to be a challenge. This is due to the significant land-use change and sustainability issues linked to pure plant oil production, and the high costs associated with the refinement of waste oil.

Chapter 5 deals with cellulose degradation. The enzymatic hydrolysis and the non-biological degradation are reviewed with a focus on useful technologies for biorefineries. Chapter 6 presents hemicelluloses and lignin, the other key constituents of biomass. Their molecular structure, biosynthesis, and degradation are described. 23 Lignocellulosic Biorefineries 24 Chapter 7 covers the pretreatments of lignocellulosic biomass in order to fractionate the material. The pretreatments include steam explosion, steam cracking, solvent fractionation, acid pretreatment, alkaline pretreatment, microwave, and other physical pretreatments.
