Abstract: Pulping characteristics of 14-year old Acacia Mearnsii were investigated using kraft pulping and C/D-EOP-D-D bleaching. Results were compared with those obtained from eucalyptus, poplar, and bamboo pulped under similar conditions. We observed that Acacia Mearnsii wood had relatively low lignin content and high basic as well as bulk density. It gave high unbleached-pulp yield at low kappa number. It could be easily bleached to brightness levels of about 88% with low bleach chemical consumption, high bleached-pulp yield, and high strength properties. Fast-growth rate, adaptability to varying climatic conditions, and multi-utility nature of its wood make Acacia Mearnsii economically important tree.
