3 Introduction Now pulp and paper industries have two major problems 1.Environmental problem2.Economic problemTo reduce deforestationTo protect environmentTo reduce costTo make the process more environment friendly
4 IntroductionThe wood costs, almost 50% of the production costs for a pulpmill.The average global conifer wood price reached a new all-time-high ofUS$112.53/odmt (oven-dry metric ton) in the 2Q/08.This was up 11% from 2007 and 26% higher than two years ago.Source: according to the [2Q 2008 ] market report Wood Resource Quarterly (WRQ).
5 IntroductionThe average non-conifer wood fiber costs were reaching a record-high of US$108.77/odmt in the 2Q,which was up 16% from a year ago and 23% higher than in 2006.Some of the largest increases have occurred in Brazil where costs for pulpwood traded in the open market have increased over 300 % in five years in US dollar terms, and more than 200 % as measured in the Brazilian Reais.Source: according to the [2Q 2008 ] market report Wood Resource Quarterly (WRQ).
6 IntroductionEnvironmental regulations in different countries have been set a limit of the amount of effluent (its components) discharges.
10 Pulp mills release toxins such as dioxin and furan and other organochlorines in their effluent Source:

12 Objectives of the study Science, there is no superior pulping procedure than kraft process,We have to improve the processeither by process modification like MCC, EMCC, RDH.or by adding some chemicals to improve yield and delignification.
13 IntroductionProcess modification requires major capital investment and increase recovery boiler load.Digester additives are less costly alternatives for decreasing kappa number and improving yield.Digester modifications and pulping additives do not work antagonistically but are complementary

15 Objectives of the study Many researches have done in Europe, North and South America with different additives for their local softwood and hardwood kraft cookingVery few researches have done in Southeast Asian hardwoods like Eucalyptus.We wanted compare the effectiveness of different additives with traditional kraft process in local wood.
16 Scope of study● To find out the effect of additives in kraft pulping of Eucalyptus camaldulensis.● To find out the effect of solvent in kraft pulping of Eucalyptus camaldulensis.● To find out the combine and synergistic effect of additives and solvent in kraft pulping of Eucalyptus camaldulensis.● To find out the yield and quality of pulps from different additives charges
17 Literature review Inhibiting the "peeling reaction" Oxidizing agent, converts the reducing (reactive) end group of the carbohydrates to an alkali-stable aldonic acid.reducing agent, converts the carbonyl group in the reducing end units of carbohydrate chains to hydroxyl groups.
18 Literature reviewThe phenyl propane units of lignin are joined through carbon-carbon and carbon-oxygen bonds in a random sequence.During pulping, most of the carbon-carbon linkages are stable, while carbon-oxygen bonds are cleaved to varying extents.

31 Results and Pulp strength properties Tensile index of different cooking
32 CONCLUSIONS Major results are found High pulp yield in cooking Both high and low cooking kappa numberHigher strength pulp than reference pulp
33 Conclusions AQ reduced the kappa 14.6 %. Urea increases both yield and Kappa. Yield and Kappa increased 9.5 % and 83.4 % respectively.Tensile index of this pulp was about 47 % higher than reference pulp.
34 ConclusionsCombined effect of additive and surfactant does not change the result significantly.Synergetic effect of AQ and urea gives 9.4 % higher yield and 8 % higher Kappa than the reference cooking.
35 Positive outcome from thesis AQ reduced the kappa 14.6 %.Urea increased yield 9.5 % and kappa 83.4 %Urea increased tensile index near about 50 %AQ + Urea increased yield 9.4 % and kappa 8 %
36 RECOMMENDATIONS The future research should be extended to 1. Different alkali charges2. Lower sulphidity3. H- factors4. Liquor ratios5. Bleaching6. New practical applications7. Tests run in industrial scale
