Sweet sorghum: A quality raw material for the manufacturing of chemical paper pulp



Sweet sorghum: A quality raw material for the manufacturing of chemical paper pulp



Biomass and Bioenergy 8(6): 411-417



After sugar extraction from sweet sorghum in conditions adaptable to the industrial scale, the bagasse obtained was used (for the first time) to manufacture chemical pulp. The pulp obtained had excellent quality for the paper industry: the degree of cohesion was >80%, the kappa number was low (indicating good delignification), the degree of polymerization was high, and physico-mechanical properties were exceptional.
