Conference paper


The principle of paper recycling is based on that the inter-fiber bonding can be broken by hydration to isolate individual pulp fiber; that is, the sheet forming using water is a reversible process. It is interrogative whether every aspect in recycling is reversible, preserving the level of paper-making properties. It is obvious that most of paper properties in strength are lowered by the re-use of recycled chemical pulp fibers.
