Cellulosic ethanol is a type of biofuel made from lignocellulose, a structural material made up mostly of cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin that makes up a large portion of the mass of plants. Cellulosic ethanol is ethanol (ethyl alcohol)produced from cellulose (a plant's stringy fibre) rather than the seeds or fruit of the plant. Grass, wood, algae, and other plants can all be used to make it. It is frequently discussed as a biofuel. Because the carbon dioxide absorbed by plants during growth offsets some of the carbon dioxide emitted when ethanol created from them is consumed, cellulosic ethanol fuel has the potential to have a lesser carbon footprint than fossil fuels. The potential for cellulosic ethanol to replace ethanol derived from corn or sugarcane has sparked interest. These plants are also used to make food, diverting them for ethanol production could raise food prices; cellulose-based sources, on the other hand, do not compete with food because humans cannot eat the fibrous sections of plants. Another possible benefit is the variety and diversity of cellulose supplies; grasses, trees, and algae may be found in practically any environment on the planet. Even municipal solid waste materials such as paper might theoretically be converted to ethanol.
