Cellulose is found in the cell wall of plant fibers in the form of nanofibers. The Young’s modulus of the crystalline portion is close to 140 GPa whereas the tensile strength of nanofibers is estimated to be above 2 GPa. Cellulose nanofiber has the potential to become an environmentally benign substitute for conventional reinforcements, but the overall cost of production is prohibitive due to the high energy demand and low yields of the mainstream processes, along the need of expensive devices for proper extraction. This study proposes the use of an affordable kitchen blender adapted to extract cellulose nanofiber from agricultural crop byproducts to reduce production cost. Preliminary results showed that blending of pulp fibers from grass straw produces nanofibers similar to commercially available morphologies. So far the raw material for nanofiber extraction has been mainly pulp fibers from wood, but the availability of cellulose in plant cells other than fibers would make nanofibers accessible to a wider research community and accelerate the development of cellulose-based nanocomposites.
