The pulp is defined as the lignocellulosic fibrous material that is prepared by chemically or mechanically separating the cellulose fibres from wood or waste paper. There are various ways of manufacturing wood pulp; mechanical methods, chemical methods. Chemical pulping uses various chemicals to separate cellulose from lignin. The wood pulp thus created provides very high quality paper. The different types of chemical pulping methods are kraft, sulfite, and semi chemical pulping methods. The semi chemical wood pulping method is cooking the wood chips in solutions that are neutral. These solutions include sodium sulfite and sodium hydroxide or sodium carbonate solutions. In addition to the chemical process, refining using mechanical process is also used to separate the fibres. Out of the total pulp produced using chemical method, over 5% constitutes of semi chemical methods. Moreover, the global Semi Chemical Wood Pulp Market is expected to exhibit a moderate single digit growth in the forecast period.
