Fungal Lignocellulolytic Enzymes: Applications in Biodegradation and Bioconversion

- Pp. 28-44 (17)

Juana Pérez and Aurelio Moraleda-Muñoz


Lignocellulosic materials as industrial, agricultural, and forest residues account for the majority of the total renewable biomass present on Earth. Some fungi are equipped with potent enzymatic systems involved in the hydrolysis or oxidation of these biopolymers. Herein, we provide an update of lignocellulose biodegradation processes and the main biotechnological applications of lignocellulolytic fungi or their enzymes in biotransformation and biodegradation of wastes, and in the conversion of biomass into valuable products.
