Cellulases are the enzymes which hydrolysis cellulosic biomass and are being produced by the microorganisms grown over cellulosic matters. Cellulase is an important enzyme which can be obtained from cheap agrowastes,as well as cellulose as substrates by using submerged fermentation and solid state fermentation. Cellulose protein can be degraded by cellulase enzyme produced by cellulolytic bacteria and fungi. This enzyme has various unique industrial applications and it has been considered as major group of industrial enzyme. In this present review paper, discussion attempted on “cellulase production” by submerged and solid state fermentation using various types of bacteria and fungi with different types of agro wastes
