Abstract: This paper proposes a study on the availability of raw materials for biofuels. In general, the bio resources depend on the geographical location and varies from season to season. Given the availability and the reduced costs, currently, lignocellulose biomass is the most promising feedstock for the production of bioethanol fuel. But the commercial production of this biofuel is limited due to the conversion technologies, namely the bioethanol yield of the agricultural residues and other lignocelluloses. For the design of the bioethanol production process, the physical evaluation of raw material is necessary, but also by the proportion of sucrose, starch and lignocellulose. And this is necessary because it presents significant share in the costs of bioethanol. The bibliographic study and the interpretation of the statistical data concludes that there are many bio renewable resources, with repercussions in sustainability.
