Co-production of ethanol and cellulose fiber from Southern Pine: A technical and economic assessment
Abstract Hemicellulose can be extracted from loblolly pine by dilute acid hydrolysis, and the remaining wood mass can be delignified to produce cellulose fiber. This paper contains an assessment ofExpand

PULPING AND BLEACHING OF PARTIALLY CAD-DEFICIENT WOOD
ABSTRACT Mutant loblolly pine trees that are partially deficient in cinnamyl alcohol dehydrogenase (CAD) have been studied as a possible new source of pulpwood. Young (4- and 6-year-old) partiallyExpand

Effect of Intensive Forest Management Practices on Wood Properties and Pulp Yield of Young, Fast Growing Southern Pine
The demand for southern pine fiber is increasing. However, the land resources to produce wood fiber are decreasing. The wood industry is now using intensive cultural treatments, such as competitionExpand

Cellulose Microfibril Angle as a Determinant of Paper Strength and Hygroexpansivity in Pinus Taeda L.
To determine the importance of cellulose microfibril angle (MFA) for paper sheet mechanical properties, we prepared unbleached kraft pulps from ten individual, 10-year-old Pinus taeda (loblolly pine)Expand

Scanning Electron Microscopy Measurements of the Surface Roughness of Paper
A new approach to the measurement of x−y uniformity of the surface of a paper sheet is described. Scanning electron micrographs are taken of both the top and bottom surfaces of a paper sheet andExpand

Optimization of ECF bleaching of kraft pulp: II. Effects of acid prehydrolysis on hardwood pulp bleachability
Earlier studies (1) have shown that when a hardwood kraft pulp is bleached in the D 0 (EO)D 1 ED 2 sequence, the brightness of the pulp emerging from the D 2 stage can be accurately predicted fromExpand
