Abstract

In this modern age, the consumption of paper has increased tremendously. Conventionally, paper is manufactured from cellulosic materials like bamboo, hardwood, cotton, etc. Agricultural residues of non-woody nature like cotton stalks, wheat straw, rice straw, sorghum stalks, hemp, jute, etc., are possible raw materials which could be used for paper making. One of the materials found to be promising is Banana stem waste, which is a very good source of cellulose. After harvest of fruit, huge quantities of waste biomass is generated and discarded as waste due to nonindustrial utilization. Studies have shown that with some modification in chemical and physical treatment different parts of Banana can be utilized to Kraft paper. For the study presented here, we have chosen Banana plant as a raw material to produce paper by Kraft process. The Banana stem has low lignin content along with long cellulose fibres of higher strength which is resulted in reduced demand for chemicals and energy for processing. The abundance of Banana plantation in Konkan region is having scope to establish a paper industry utilizing Banana stems as a feedstock. In this project we will study the various stages of paper and pulp making using Banana stem
