Abstract
Cellulose is the most abundant and renewable resource on the earth. Cellulose metabolism is an important component of the biosphere carbon cycle. With the increasing of energy consumption, environmental pollution and population, more attention was paid for the utilization of cellulose. As an important part of the development of energy, food and material, the degradation of cellulose and the research of cellulase showed to be significance. This paper describes the characteristics of cellulose degradation via cellulase and its research progress. The importance of cellulase for energy development, food engineering, environmental engineering, and the application in other fields were discussed.
