The cultivation of agricultural crops results in the generation of agricultural byproducts. Researchers have reported that these materials can be useful in a variety of applications. However, over 50% of them are currently discarded because of the lack of specific technologies in industrial applications. Therefore, effective and specific applications must be developed in order to manufacture high-quality materials using discarded lignocellulosic resources. In this study, we determined the possibility of using kraft pulp from major agricultural byproducts as a raw material for the manufacture of paperboard. Rice husks, peanut husks, and garlic stems were obtained and used to prepare many kinds of kraft pulps by controlling the active alkali, sulfidity, reaction time, and liquor ratio. After the production of these kraft pulps, handsheets were manufactured by mixing them with KOCC. After preconditioning, the physical properties and strengths of the handsheets were measured according to the TAPPI test methods. The shapes, lengths, and widths of the pulp fibers varied according to the type of agricultural byproduct and the kraft pulping conditions. Rice husk and garlic stem pulps manufactured under mild pulping conditions resulted in handsheets of higher bulk than other pulps. Garlic stem pulps manufactured under mild pulping conditions were stronger than rice husk pulps and peanut husk pulps.

Tissue and paper manufacturing companies have common problems with increasing cost of imported virgin pulp and the restriction of using woods in the forest. Possibility of using bagasse pulp for solving those problems was studied. In order to reduce the production cost and study the dependency on pulps, bagasse pulp has been studied for mixing with Sw-BKP and Hw-BKP. Optimum blending ratio of wood pulps and bagasse pulp to enhance tissue properties were analyzed. Various properties of the hand sheet after blending of wood pulp and bagasse pulp were measured. As results, the bagasse pulp could substitute the hard wood pulp with similar properties of tissue. Therefore, we judged that the bagasse pulp was suitable for replacement of the hardwood pulp.

This study was carried out to evaluate whether EVAc, acryl latex and biobinder could substitute the part of SB latex for pre-coating color formula or not. Different coating colors prepared through the substitution of 30% SB latex with EVAc, acryl latex, and biobinder were applied for pre-coating layer. 100% SB latex is used as a binder for top coating color. The optical properties, gloss, roughness, stiffness, dry- and wet-pick strength were measured. There were no significant differences in the brightness, whiteness, opacity, roughness, ink set-off and gloss of paper coated with 5 different coating colors. However the stiffness, dry- and wet-pick strength were somewhat lower than those of conventional coating color which 100% SB latex was used as a binder. Although the part of SB latex could be substituted with EVAc, acryl latex and biobinder without sacrificing the qualities of coated paper. Further researches on the improvement of stiffness, dry- and wet-pick strength, and the optimization of rheology of coating color in order to improve the qualities of coated paper are strongly recommended.

This study was carried out to elucidate the partial substitutability of SB latex with environmental-friendly coating binders for coated paper. Starch - based biobinder, ethylene vinyl acetate and acryl-based binder were evaluated for this purpose. Several combinations of above binders were applied to top layer coating, and properties of coating colors and printability were evaluated. When 20% and 30% of SB latex were substituted by acryl-based synthetic binder, ethylene vinyl acetate and biobinder, the brightness, whiteness and opacity of coated paper were similar to those obtained from SB latex. Ink set and stiffness of coated paper manufactured through 20% and 30% substitution of SB latex by biobinder and EVAc were improved, but dry- and wet-pick strength were decreased. The research works on the improvement of dry- and we-pick strength, mechanical stability and rheological properties at high shear condition should be continued for the commercial application of biobinder, EVAc and acryl-based binder.
