Depletion of non-renewable sources of energy and materials has stimulated the search for new ways to generate chemicals, energy and materials using renewable sources. The best renewable resource is the one that can be supplied in a relatively short period of time and whose amount is in principle unlimited. Such substrates come from plants, animals or ecosystems and can be regenerated through sustainable management.
