The production of nanocellulose from cellulose-based biomaterials has increased research in nanotechnology due to their biocompatibility, biodegradability, renewability, and low toxicity. The physicochemical properties of nanocellulose produced from waste biomass have broad environmental, geotechnical, food packaging, and biomedical engineering applications. There is growing attention to advance research in producing nanocellulose based on its unique properties. Textile waste is a good source of cellulose for the development of nanocellulose. A comprehensive study on the most recent developments in the extraction of nanocellulose from textile wastes using the enzymatic assisted technique as a green functional biomaterial has rarely been subjected to extensive review. Thus, against this limitation, an extensive study on nanocellulose derived from textile wastes focusing on the enzymatic hydrolysis process, properties, and recent wide-range applications are the focus of this work. The review is concluded with their potential as novel bionanomaterials.
