In the current international context, the development of industrial technology that will allow the production of agro-fuels from lignocellulosic biomass is becoming ever more important for society. However, despite over thirty years of research, several hurdles still have to be surmounted before the first industrial facilities begin to produce ethanol. Nevertheless, thanks to its ability to generate innovative, clean and sustainable solutions for industry, biotechnology is now well-poised to
