Currently, organic solvents can be replaced by enzymes to disrupt the cell wall.

In fact, although petroleum-based materials represent the major nonrenewable feedstock for producing fuels, their inadequate reservoirs and the rapid increase in their price have directed the research toward the ‘facility that integrates conversion biomass processes and equipment to produce fuels, power, and chemicals from biomass’ (National Renewable Energy Laboratory, 2010). First-generation biofuels (such as biogas, biosyngas, biodiesels, and bioalcohols derived from vegetable oil, sugar, and starch) are generally the result of the conversion of lignocellulosic raw materials in ethanol.
