their reliance on fossil fuels, the demand for second-generation biofuels continues to rise. Biofuels generated from wastes, municipal and agricultural residues and dedicated crops that do not compete with food crops (e.g., crops grown on marginal land) are expected to make up approximately 40% of the biofuels consumed in 2030 in the Net Zero Emissions Scenario, up from an estimated 9% in 2021.
Agricultural waste is an inevitable by-product of farming activities that often accumulates in large quantities and can pose environmental challenges. However, when harnessed effectively, agricultural waste becomes a valuable resource, contributing to bioenergy and biofuels production, soil enrichment, circular economy principles, and reduced environmental impact, aligning with sustainable agricultural and energy practices.
