Agricultural residue-derived nanocellulose has the potential to be a key component of recarbonizing materials and optimizing biorefinery business cases. Nanocellulose is a light solid substance obtained from plant matter which comprises nanosized cellulose fibrils. It can be used to reinforce paper and cardboard, making it widely used in packaging techniques, for the reinforcement of plastic materials, in the sector of food additives, hygiene, and absorbent products, and for numerous other applications. This new material is a pseudo-plastic and possesses the property of specific kinds of fluids or gels that are generally thick in normal conditions. Nanocellulose has a number of advantages over traditional materials, including its lightweight, high strength, and biodegradability. It can be used to create a range of products, from packaging materials to building materials, and can be used to replace traditional materials in many applications. Additionally, nanocellulose can be used to create composites with other materials, such as plastics, to create materials with improved properties. Nanocellulose is also being explored for use in medical applications, such as wound dressings and drug delivery systems.
