Abstract: Lignocellulose conversion research over the last thirty years has involved the development of processes to improve structural carbohydrate accessibility to a few specific fungal enzymatic degradation systems; the primary focus being extraction of fermentable sugars from the plant cell wall matrix (Himmel et al., 2007).Lignocellulosic biomass is the most abundant natural biopolymer in the world, which comprises mainly of cellulose, hemicelluloses and lignin. These are considered to be the cheapest source for the production of different utilizable products and constitute a major portion of agricultural wastes and forest waste. newlineAgro-industrial wastes and byproducts are renewable form of resources generated all over the world. The agricultural waste, which are rich in the cellulose, the most abundant polymer which comprises an average of 40 percent in plant biomass can be exploited as cheap raw material for the production of industrially important enzymes and chemicals. Advances in industrial Biotechnology offer potential economic utilization of agro-industrial residues such as sugarcane bagasse, sugar beet pulp, coffe pulp/husk, apple pomace, etc. for the production of chemicals, value added products and secondary metabolites, etc. Thus, the efficient utilization of these in bioprocesses provide an alternative substrate and also helps in reducing the disposal problems. newlineCellulose is the most abundant organic compound on earth with an estimated amount of 1012 metric tons replerished mainly during plant photosynthesis (Pandey et al., 2000). The basic structure of cellulose are 1, 4-p-glycosidic linked D-glucose molecules that form unbranched chains, consisting of several thousands of glucose molecules. The number of glucose units in the cellulose molecules varies and the degree of polymerization ranges from 250 to well over 10,000, depending on the source and treatment method (Sukumaran, et al., 2005). Cellulose is a crystalline polymer, an unusual feature among biopolymers, stiffened by inter and intra chain hydrogen
