Paper Title:
Microwave Effect in Sisal Fiber Degumming
  Abstract

Alkaline cooking is common method for fiber degumming. Microwave was used to improve the degumming process of sisal fiber in this study, and the influence of degumming time, degumming temperature, and the solution composition on degumming result under microwave heating was probed. The experiment results show that microwave heating has significant effect for sisal fiber degumming. The optimal parameters for sisal fiber degumming, such as microwave heating at 100 °C for 30min in 3% NaOH solution, were also obtained.
