Abstract — the obvious search for renewable & green biofuel, in respect to the definite future scarcity of natural petro-fuel directed to the use of lignocellulosic biomass as a promising future. The Perthenium hysterophorus L., having an excessive growth rate & adaptability, is showing a high prospect as a resource of rich lignocellulosic biomass available for fermentation. It is being ignored from a long time due to its toxicity characterized by the majority presence of Perthenin toxin, the potential growth inhibitor. Being a lignocellulosic biomass, with an estimated composition of lignin: 13.9%, hemicellulose: 21.01 % and cellulose: 27.8%, it may be considered as the potential source of ethanol production substrate through pre-treatment, saccharification and fermentation pathway. The purpose of the present research work is to utilize the obnoxious parthenium weed t
