Behavior of pine wood material during displacement kraft batch cooking.

ABSTRACT Pine wood (Pinus sylvestris) was delignified using a modern displacement kraft cooking method. A series of laboratory-scale cooks (stop-cooks) was carried out to different cooking degrees representing i) the end points of warm black liquor impregnation (temperature 80°C, total yield 93.3%) and hot black liquor pretreatment (temperature 155°C, total yield 77.5%) and ii) varying chlorine numbers (1.8-7.0) in the…
