First generation bioethanol production and its use as fuel were characterized by a significant take-off in the mid-2000s. The fast growth was followed by a very sharp slowdown in line with the changed position of the European Union. The change of direction aims that priority should be given to the polysaccharide-based materials from the potential raw materials of bioethanol production, which are available not from crops, but in the form of agricultural and forestry waste and by-products. The role, economic and environmental aspects of bioethanol as the fuel of the future arise open issues. With our examinations we want to contribute to respond to those questions which analyse the impacts and economy of the bioethanol production based on agricultural by-products. In this framework we compared the quantity of cellulose can be obtained from potential raw materials, we made economic calculations, and we analysed the impacts of raw material acquisition on landscape ecology. Our aim in all of this was to map the advantages and disadvantages of the second generation bioethanol production.
