Crop residues, grasses and fast growing forest species are considered as the most promissory source of biomass for second generation bioethanol. The state of Veracruz, located in the tropical southeastern México; with 7.18 Mha has appropriate conditions to produce cereals, grasses and forest species. The objective of this work was to assess and map the potential contribution of crop residues, grasses and fast growing forest species to produce biomass as feedstock for second generation bioethanol...
