As a result of human population growth, the availability of residual lignocellulosic materials from agriculture, forestry, food- and wood-processing industries, and other waste streams is continuously increasing. The composition and abundance of lignocellulosic biomass make it a realistic option as feedstock for biorefineries, producing the bio-based fuels, materials, and chemicals required for the sustainable development of society without depending on fossil-based resources . Lignocellulosic biomass represents a practically infinite feedstock source for satisfying the demands of the industry, and could thus contribute to achieving a carbon-neutral future and alleviating the current threats related to climate change. In previous collections, we compiled relevant contributions on the chemistry and technology of lignocellulosic biomass  and on the bioconversion of crop residues to biofuels and other bio-based products . With this Special Issue, we present a new collection of articles dealing with cutting-edge topics in the field of lignocellulosic biomass.
