I have 300 references. I cited 230 of them. In the References it shows 230 references. Now, how can I list the remaining 70 references in a Bibliography section.

Note: I don't want


as it will list all 300 references. I only want to list the un-cited 70 references.

Here is how to do it, filtering with the field keywords={nocite}:

\usepackage[backend=bibtex, sorting=none, style=numeric-comp, defernumbers]{biblatex}

\printbibliography[keyword=cite,heading=subbibliography,title={Cited papers}]%
\printbibliography[keyword=nocite,heading=subbibliography,title={Supplementary papers}]


The .bib file:

  author = {Name1, Surname1},
  title = {Title of the first book in the  \emph{Cited}  category},
  publisher = {Name of the Publisher},
  year = {2017},
  keywords = {cite}
  author = {Name2, Surname2},
  title = {Title of the  book in the \emph{Not cited} category},
  publisher = {Name of the Publisher},
  year = {2016},
  keywords = {nocite}
  author = {Name3, Surname3},
  title = {This is the title of first article in the \emph{Cited}  category},
  journal = {Name of the Journal},
  year = {2017},
  volume = {01},
  number = {12},
  pages = {1-20},
  keywords = {cite}

If you want independent numbering of the subbibliographies, add the option [resetnumbers] to the \printbibliography commands:
