The use of waste in the expanding field of biobased products and bioenergy cannot only limit environmental pollution, but also assist many countries and cities with the management of their increasing solid waste volumes. Research at the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Medical University of Southern Africa deals with the bioconversion of used paper materials to fermentable sugars such as glucose during an enzymatic-catalyzed process. The bioconversion process of used paper into fermentable sugars and ethanol which could be a source of bioenergy or biofuels is discussed.
