Lignocellulosic biomass has been extensively employed for the development of biochar (BC), activated carbon (AC), and functional materials. Moreover, lignocellulosic biomass-derived catalyst materials have gained considerable attention due to their various distinctive attributes, namely existence of various functional groups, low cost, and environmental-friendliness nature. The fabrication of catalysts from biomass-derived carbonaceous materials has drawn a prevalent interest in the treatment of recalcitrant pollutants. In this chapter, we have focused on the applicability of lignocellulosic biomass-derived carbonaceous materials for the tailoring of catalyst materials. Further, various feedstock sources, the composition of lignocellulosic biomass, different strategies for biomass conversion, as well as the effects of catalyst synthesis parameters are reviewed. The role of biomass-derived catalysts in the treatment of recalcitrant pollutants by advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) is reviewed. Further, the critical challenges in the applicability of biomass-derived catalysts in water treatment are also discussed. This book chapter will shed light on the design and fabrication of catalyst materials from waste lignocellulosic biomass for wastewater treatment.
