Definitions

Compound Annual Growth Rate
• The CAGR is the general projected growth rate of the industry from the base year to the end of the forecast period.

Pulping Process
• The chemical pulping process removes the degraded lignin, hemicellulose and other chemicals contained in the pulping solution. The solution, known as black liquor, is further processed to obtain valuable chemicals that are utilized in industrial applications.
• The by-products have been classified into lignin (lignosulfonates and lignin sulfates), tall oil, and black liquor gasification products. Lignin are widely applied in agriculture for plant and animal nutrition and the high-purity lignin are used in food and cosmetic applications.
• Lignin are also used in concrete as dispersants and lignosulphonates are used as retarding agents.

Bleaching Process
• The bleaching process is used to brighten paper, decreasing the color of the pulp.
• The process is often called as delignification. In the bleaching process, where as the largest amount of lignin was removed in the pulping process, the color removal only reach the remaining lignin and its derivatives. The market had been used chorine, but as for environmental impacts, end- users have been trading it for hydrogen peroxide, chlorine dioxide, oxygen, and ozone.

Coating and Finishing Process
• Paper coating is done primarily to improve the printability, optical properties and strength of paper. Printing and writing papers are the two major sectors that require the highest volumes of coating chemicals.
• Paper coating additives are used in the paper production process in order to adapt the paper surface to various environmental conditions. The main coating and finishing chemical used in the market is starch.
• Tall oil fatty acids are applied as binders in paints and coatings, polytrophic industry, and floatation reagents.
• The main pulping chemicals used in the market are sodium hydroxide and sodium sulfate.
