Editorial Reviews

Each chapter author in this collection has developed a new process for the production of pulp and paper, representing a shift to more environmentally friendly techniques in the industry. In their introduction, the editors claim that the contributors' approaches generally represent revolutionary, rather than evolutionary change. Eighteen contributions are grouped in sections on chemical and on biological applications to pulp and paper processing. Among the topics: organosolv, acetic acid-based, and steam explosion pulping; chlorine-free bleaching of pulps; industrially important white-rot fungi; biomechanical pulping; and engineering, scale-up, and economic aspects of fungal pretreatment of wood chips. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
