In its broadest sense, and according to the traditional conception, wood chemistry is a comprehensive discipline, ranging from fundamental studies to practical applications. The manifold constituents, located in different morphological regions in the wood, results in an extreme complexity of wood chemistry. Ever more sophisticated endeavors needing fundamental studies and advanced analytical methods are necessary in order to delve deeper into various problems in pulping and papermaking. Gradually, new, improved ana lytical methods, originally developed for research purposes, are currently replacing many of the old "routine" methods in practical applications. Because of the expanse of the subject, an attempt to write a book of this size about analytical methods seems, perhaps, too ambitious. Of course, a whole book series of several volumes would be necessary to cover this topic completely. However, there is undoubtedly a need for a more condensed presentation which does not go into experimental details, but is limited to the basic principles of the analytical methods and illustrates their applica tions. The emphasis is on more advanced and potential methods, and partic ularly on those based on different types of spectroscopy and chromatography.

The pulp and paper industry comprises companies that use wood as raw material and produce pulp, paper, board and other cellulose based products. The pulp and paper sector presents one of the energy intensive and highly polluting sectors within the Indian economy and is therefore of particular interest in the context of both local and global environmental discussions. Increases in productivity through the adoption of more efficient and cleaner technologies in the manufacturing sector will be most effective in merging economic, environmental, and social development objectives. Papers are mostly used product starting from writing to packaging. It plays an important role in commercial field as well as in academic field also. Without paper nothing is expressible and reliable, so paper is part and parcel of our life. Adequate amount of raw materials for processing paper and pulp is available. Bamboo is the main raw material for Indian paper industry. New bamboo areas even at high cost are being trapped. Some of the examples of high yield pulping process are mechanical process, semi chemical process, alkaline chemical process, sulfite process, etc. Physical strength properties of paper depend on the quality of raw material, its pulping, bleaching and subsequent paper making processes. Technology has made it easy to process these raw materials in an economic and lucrative way to meet the global demand. Raw materials like, straw, bagasse, wood, bamboo is almost available in most of the places. So it is great opportunity for the entrepreneurs to start up such kind of industry. Paper Industry has tremendously increased in India in the last 20 to 30 yrs. The Paper industry is a priority sector for foreign collaboration and foreign equity participation up to 100% receives automatic approval by Reserve Bank of India. Several fiscal incentives have also been provided to the paper industry, particularly to those mills which are based on non conventional raw material. Some of the fundamentals of the book are bleaching of bamboo cold, high yield semi chemical pulping of mixture of bamboo and mixed hardwoods, sulphate semi chemical process, kraft green liquor semi chemical process, neutral sulphite semi chemical process, thermo mechanical pulps for newsprint, zeta potential concept in paper sizing, sodium carbonate in alkali extraction during bleaching bamboo , maintenance engineering in pulp and paper industry, design and application of refiners in stock preparation, paper machine effluent etc. This book explains about the various raw material, their processing and utilizations and also the possible waste treatment of such paper and pulp making industry. To draw attention for manufacturing quality product with all possible latest technologies is the main purpose of this book. The book is very resourceful for new entrepreneurs, technocrats, existing units and research scholars.

This book features in-depth and thorough coverage of Minimum Impact Mill Technologies which can meet the environmental challenges of the pulp and paper industry and also discusses Mills and Fiberlines that encompass “State-of-the-Art” technology and management practices. The minimum impact mill does not mean "zero effluent", nor is it exclusive to one bleaching concept. It is a much bigger concept which means that significant progress must be made in the following areas: Water Management, Internal Chemical Management, Energy Management, Control and Discharge of Non-Process Elements and Removal of Hazardous Pollutants. At the moment, there is no bleached kraft pulp mill operating with zero effluent. With the rise in environmental awareness due to the lobbying by environmental organizations and with increased government regulation there is now a trend towards sustainability in the pulp and paper industry. Sustainable pulp and paper manufacturing requires a holistic view of the manufacturing process. During the last decade, there have been revolutionary technical developments in pulping, bleaching and chemical recovery technology. These developments have made it possible to further reduce loads in effluents and airborne emissions. Thus, there has been a strong progress towards minimum impact mills in the pulp and paper industry. The minimum-impact mill is a holistic manufacturing concept that encompasses environmental management systems, compliance with environmental laws and regulations and manufacturing technologies.

Cellulose represents the most widely spread organic polymer found in nature and it was used for a long time as a raw material for paper, textiles, film and flexible packing material. Due to its accessibility in huge amounts by photosynthesis process as a renewable material, cellulose is considered at present the answer to many problems connected with sustainable development. This explains the great scientific interest for this compound along with a lot of preoccupations to systematize the accumulated information in reviews and books. This book will present the aspects of cellulose obtaining in the correleation with its integration in a new concept of biorefining. Thus usual technological steps of pulp manufacture (pulping, bleaching) will be continued with chemistry charactersitics of by-products and their utilization, fiber characterization for paper obtaining, cellulose derivatives and special products resulted in cellulose processing (beads and microspheres, micro-and nano-structures, fibers production, their antibacterial properties, optical functional film, and hydrogen). This extensive book should prove to be a very useful tool for scientists, students and postgraduates working in the field of pulp, paper and cellulose derivatives aiming at opening a new era for renewable resources processed by biorefining.

Pulp and Paper Industry: Chemical Recovery examines the scientific and technical advances that have been made in chemical recovery, including the very latest developments. It looks at general aspects of the chemical recovery process and its significance, black liquor evaporation, black liquor combustion, white liquor preparation, and lime reburning. The book also describes the technologies for chemical recovery of nonwood black liquor, as well as direct alkali regeneration systems in small pulp mills. In addition, it includes a discussion of alternative chemical recovery processes, i.e. alternative causticization and gasification processes, and the progress being made in the recovery of filler, coating color, and pigments. Furthermore, it discusses the utilization of new value streams (fuels and chemicals) from residuals and spent pulping liquor, including related environmental challenges. Offers thorough and in-depth coverage of scientific and technical advances in chemical recovery in pulp making Discusses alternative chemical recovery processes, i.e., alternative causticization and gasification processes Covers the progress being made in the recovery of filler, coating color, and pigments Examines utilization of new value streams (fuels and chemicals) from residuals and spent pulping liquor Discusses environmental challenges (air emissions, mill closure) Presents ways in which the economics, energy efficiency, and environmental protection associated with the recovery process can be improved
