Studies on Production of High Quality Pulp from Veneer Waste of Populous Species

D. Dutt
Fiber length, diameter, cell wall thickness and lumen diameter of mixed veneer waste of populous species are 0.95 mm, 24.7 µm, 4.7 µm and 7.2 µm respectively. Lignin contents in out surface and inner core are 20.5 and 22.4% with holocellulose contents of 71.1 and 69.8% respectively. Bulk densities of veneer waste populous species at different grith classes i.e. 21¬30, 31¬45 and 46¬75 cm are 189, 193 and 218 kg/m3. Veneer waste obtained at different...
