Conference paper


Many Eucalyptus plantations have been developed in the tropical and sub-tropical regions. Eucalyptus globulus is one of the fast-growing species planted in temperate regions and its normal rotation period is 8–10 years. It is suitable for kraft pulping because of its high pulp yield and the tree plantation is expected to solve the pulpwood supply shortage effectively in many regions in the world. However, more effective utilization of E. globulus trees as a raw material of pulp is demanded because kraft pulp yield is usually lower than mechanical pulp.
