  • Paper Pulp by Enzymatic Treatment of Agricultural Residues and Waste Paper

    In the last years non woody plants, and particularly agricultural residues, received an increasing attention as source of fibres for paper mills. Their cell walls allow an efficient biopulping by means of enzymes. By adopting our LINA process, the enzymes are produced efficiently by solid-state fermentation (SSF) of lignocellulosic materials (Giovannozzi Sermanni and Porri, 1989). Therefore an ...

Therefore, water resource management has become a more critical factor ...

  • Preparation of cationic waste paper and its application in poisonous dye removal

    Cationic paper was prepared by reaction of paper with 2,3-epoxypropyltrimethylammonium chloride in aqueous suspension, and tested as low-cost adsorbent for wastewater treatment. The experimental results revealed that anionic dyes (Acid Orange 7, Acid Red 18, and Acid Blue 92) were adsorbed on the cationic paper nicely. The maximum amount of dye Acid Orange 7 adsorbed on cationic paper was 337.2 ...
