The Study on Pulping and Papermaking Performance of Banana Stem and Leaf
The chemical composition of various parts of banana stem and leaf were analysed. The soda cooking and kraft cooking process of banana stem were optimized. The bleaching performance of the banana stem pulp was discussed. The results showed that the banana stem and leaf kraft pulp were good fiber material for pulping and papermaking. The brightness of banana stem bleached pulp can reach above 80%ISO through ClO2 bleaching.
