Abstract : Biomass waste can originate from a range of sectors, including agricultural, forestry, aquatic, and industrial waste. In order to establish a cost-effective biorefinery technology for industrializing nanocellulose-derived biomaterials, optimization of various factors affecting bioprocess is necessary. This article presents an overview of various cost-effective and greener enzymatic preparation strategies, mechanism of cellulose deconstruction and reconstruction, as well as the factors affecting bioprocesses is presented. It also discusses the role of endoglucanase, cellubiohydrolase and lytic polysaccharide monooxygenases in the enzymatic hydrolysis of process of cellulose. The potential applications of nanocellulose biocomposites in various promising fields are further presented and discussed in detail.
