The sustainable growth of any country mainly relies on three pillars, i.e., development at the social, economic and environmental level. The socio-economic development of any country, whether it is developing or developed depends heavily upon the utilization of non-renewable resources or fossil resources (Linear fossil-based economy). These resources play a potential role in making life easy at various levels ranging from home appliances, in transportation, in various industrial processes for the fulfillment of our daily needs. Due to the limited availability with unsustainable use of these non-renewable resources, the interest in the steady shift from a linear fossil-based economy to circular bio-based economy or bioeconomy is increasing day by day. The conversion of renewable resources into value-added products such as food, animal feed, bio-based other value-added products and bioenergy production through a biotechnological intervention is termed as bioeconomy. Agricultural practices are the main component of bioeconomy. The need for food and energy supply increasing with the rise in population and it implies a tremendous pressure on agriculture farming and its further processing industries. The processing of these crops is producing about 1.3x1010 metric tons per annum of lignocellulosic waste worldwide and that can be used for the production of bio-based value-added products and bioenergy.
