Plant Waste (Agro-Industrial Waste)
 

Utilization of agro-industrial waste is important because it provides a use for substance that is otherwise placed in a landfill or otherwise discarded. It also provides sources for starting materials that are better than the usual starting materials.

Biofuel is one such use of agro-industrial wastes. Others uses include use for production of specific chemicals or products and usage as substrates for microbial production.
