Bioenergy has become one of the most promising renewable energy alternatives to fossil-based energy. Many scientific tools have been developed to enhance the conversion of biomass to biofuels. Novel plant breeding and cropping technologies have been used to develop and produce energy crops to meet the growing demand for the next generation biomass feedstocks. In this chapter, the classification of biofuels based on the first and advanced generations will be covered. In addition, recent developments made in the production of cellulosic biofuels from lignocellulosic biomass will also be discussed.
