Nature provides a free lunch, but only if we control our appetites." - William Ruckelshaus. With the development of the society, oil and coal resources gradually reduced, as a sustainable, renewable energy, the development of biomass energy became the inevitable trend to save resources and protect the environment. At present, Biomass energy is rapidly developing. Biomass is the unsurpassed renewable resources, plentifully available, easily accessed and very economical. This can be used to generate waste to wealth by-products for the rectification of huge demand for raw materials. In this review, the well-organized way of conversion, environmental impacts, sources and their novelty in maintenance and utilization of micro and macro nutrients for agriculturally important crops are highlighted. The valorization of biomass with physical and chemical treatments can generate biochar, activated carbon, bio-sorbents, GODs and carbon dots. These properties can be applied for various on field applications by sensing techniques in detection, pollutant removal, agriculture, food industry and biomedical applications.
