As their is an increase of global demand in oil, the production of bioethanol from renewable agricultural feedstocks is also on the rise. Ethanol can be produced from a number of renewable resources such as starches, sugars, or lignocellulosic materials. Lignocellulosic materials continue to be investigated as a source of fermentable sugars for biofuel (ethanol) production because of their high availability. The current research investigates the utilization of newspaper and a mixture with rice straw,...
