Conference paper


The quality of the papers prepared from chemical and mechanical pulps behave differently by recycling. Recycling deteriorates papermaking quality of chemical pulps (low yield), but it improves papermaking quality of mechanical pulps. The difference by recycling was generally considered as the differences in the chemical composition of the two fiber types. Although this assumption was proposed by different authors [1, 2, 3, 4], it has not been examined well. The present work addresses this issue.
