Market Trends

Reusing industrial wood waste by a process of kraft pulping is the latest trend which is followed by the machine glazed kraft paper manufacturers. The kraft pulping is the process by which wood is turned into wood pulp, the main component of the paper. Wood chips are treated with a hot mixture of water, sodium hydroxide (NaOH), and sodium sulfide (Na2S) in large pressure vessels called digesters. Kraft pulp made from industrial wood waste can also be used to manufacture machine glazed kraft paper and it may have a darker color than any other pulp One of the major benefits of kraft pulping is that roughly 90% of the pulping chemicals can be recovered and reused in an economical manner. This makes the process more sustainable and affordable at the same time. The recycling of the industrial waste wood for the manufacturing of the kraft paper helps to overcome wastage of wood and control carbon emission and it is the latest trend in the market of machine glazed kraft paper.
