Eucalyptus tereticornis Anthocephalus indicus Kappa number, Klason lignin, strength properties
The Paper industry is divided into three main sectors based on the raw material i.e wood based,agro based and recycled fibre based mills contributes 19 %, 10% and 71 % respectively to the total production ( Anonymous -2017). The wood based paper industry get their supply from social and agro farm forestry. The Eucalyptus is main hard wood for paper making Eucalyptus is always matter of debate among ecologist regard its impact on ecology. Eucalyptus is toxic due to alleopathic properties, which reduce other plant by restricting germination of other species and is also detrimental to soil micro and macrofauna. Anthocephalus indicus, indigenous species may be used as alternative raw material in place of Eucalyptus. After different proximate chemical analysis Eucalyptus tereticornis and Anthocephalus indicus was subjected to kraft pulping using 10, 12, 14, 16 and 18 % active alkali as Na2O at 23.0 % sulphidity level. The pulps obtained from different alkali charge were evaluated for strength properties i.e Apparent Density, Tensile Index, Tear Index Burst Index. The results of was different proximate chemical analysis, pulp yield , kappa Number, strength properties was discussion in adequate length of paper
