The effect of climate change and the need for sustainable products and production processes are key issues, which are of great concern to the global community. Interestingly, there is a vast amount of biomass resources, which could possibly satisfy the increasing demand for green products, since fossil fuel is no longer advisable due to environmental concerns and other related factors. Lignocellulosic biomass and the residue generated from their processing represent the major amount of biomass resources, which cut across several sources and have been put to different applications. This chapter discusses the lignocellulosic biomass feedstock applications and motivations for their exploration. References were made to common lignocellulosic biomass and their structural constituents vis-a-vis cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin. Various value-added products, which can be harnessed from lignocellulosic biomass and its residue, are outlined. The value creation pathway for lignocellulosic is discussed.
