Enzymatic treatment of high yield pulps

Products and processes for enzymatic treatment of paper
pulps and of high yield pulp in particular.

Development of products and processes for enzymatic treatment of paper pulps and of high yield pulp in particular. The purpose is to find new biocatalysts which would help in: a) creating new paper and pulp qualities required by the growing market (improved whiteness, opacity and strength, etc.) b) replacing or completing the use of certain chemicals in the paper industry and thus contributing to the fight against pollution. c) reducing the energy consumption of the paper industry. d) giving the paper industry a better control over its processes.
