Bagasse fiber has been used in the production
of bleached chemical pulp by the Pars Paper Company.
In this company, a conventional three-stage sequence of
hypochlorite, alkaline extraction and second hypochlorite
(HEH) is applied in pulp bleaching. Pulp bleaching is one
of the most important environmental pollutant stages in
the pulp and paper industry. In this research, the bleaching
of soda bagasse pulp by applying Oxone and TAEDactivator
in non-chlorine bleaching sequences has been
investigated. The unbleached pulp, with kappa number
of 20, 955 ml/g viscosity and 37 % brightness, was prepared
from Pars Paper Company. Results indicated that,
the TAED at the first and second stages were more effective
than in the Oxone stages. Moreover, the sequences,
which contained TAED- and Oxone-second-stage, could
reach the minimum level of kappa (1.7), but the highest
brightness (80 %) was attained by using only TAED with
a comparatively high level of pulp viscosity (752).
