Abstract: In order to comply with the criteria of sustainability that society and industry demand today, it is necessary to work with ecoefficient processes, that is, "producing more with less", so as to promote better management of resources and energy and at the same time minimizing environmental impacts. Therefore, it is important for the term "biomass". Biomass can efficiently replace or complement petroleum in the production of fuels for the transport sector. One of the effective strategies for the processing of complex raw materials of biomass consists of the pre-conversion into simpler compounds (platform molecules) that are more easily transformed into subsequent update reactions. This work intends to cover the most relevant catalytic strategies designed for the conversion of levulnic acid as raw material to Nonano as biofuel. Therefore, it is shown which is the best pretreatment to separate lignocellulose biomass, the posterior hydrolysis of cellulose to glucose (or to other C6 sugars), as from this sugar obtained levulinic acid and how this acid is reached the Nonano molecule with gamma-valerolactone and pentanoic acid as intermediate
