Abstract: Recycled pulp contains large amount of fines having high surface area and amorphous cellulose. These fines adsorb water to large extent and dewatering rate is lower compared to virgin pulp. Selective hydrolysis of these excess ultra fines through cellulase enzymes can be utilized for enhancing the drainage rate. The concept of monocomponent cellulase treatment of recycled pulp for improvement in drainage and the understanding whether effectiveness depends on a specific type of cellulase component (endoglucanase/cellobiohydrolase) is described. The improvement of 15-23% in pulp drainability was achieved along with better paper properties. © 2014 The Korean Society of Industrial and Engineering Chemistry.
