Lignocellulosic biomass is a promising biofuel source that is studied for recent years. However, the biofuel potential of lignocellulosic biomass relies on the pretreatment performance directly and sugar recovery yields and the pretreatment processes required to achieve that yield is significant. Therefore, pretreatment conditions were optimized with resonse surface methodology for biological hydrogen production. This study investigated the best pretreatment conditions for olive tree biomass to produce bio-hydrogen.
