Abstract

Nonwood plant fibers represent a substantial potential source of raw material for the pulp industry and they are being increasingly for multiplicity of uses. In this study, the pulping potential of the pineapple leaves (ananas comusus) was evaluated by studying physical, mechanical properties, kraft pulp yield and fibre characteristics. Chemical pulping of pineapple leaves fiber is comparatively new with various pulping condition were used. The result indicate that viable pulp can be produced from pineapple leaves using 12% active alkaline and 3 1/2 hour cooking of 170°C.
