Abstract

Burning of fossil fuels has not only led to health problems but also have a great impact on our environment like acid rain, climate change, global warming. And it is excepted by 2070, the current globe will be running out of fossil fuel. Our work was conducted on weed plant Agave tequilana, wherein microbial fermentation was carried out on pretreated biomass with 0.8% of NaOH and 98% H2SO4 by using standard cultures of Aspergillus niger (ATCC 16404)and Saccharomyces cerevisiae (NCIM 3622). The percentage of Bio-Ethanol yield was found to be 45.55%.
