One of the main issues that the world is facing is population growth. One of the critical issues would be providing accessible, safe and reliable energy for the current population and the next generation. To provide for the growing population's needs under the umbrella of sustainable development, one of the vital factors is energy supply. Providing safe, clean and affordable energy for the current population and the next generation is one of the highest priorities. The need for everyone to have access to affordable energy sources, a great dependence on fossil fuels, the depletion of finite resources, as well as the critiques of the negative impact of fossil fuels on the environment are the most notable barriers that incite states to search for new options. In this context, Biofuel is among those renewable energies that can be a substitute for fossil fuels. The bioethanol is the most consumed worldwide biofuel; it can be produced from several other substrates rich in fermentable sugars, namely cellulosic biomass, energy crops and organic waste. This study provides an analysis of the production of bioethanol made from common dates of low commercial value. These represent an excellent material for the production of bioethanol since it is rich in sugar, economic, abundant, and there is no competition with food crops.
