Pulp and Paper & Pollution Control

Head of Programme:

Dr. Ainun Zuriyati Mohamed @ Asa’ari - Pulp & Paper


Members:

  1. Assoc. Prof. Dr. Umi Kalsom Md Shah - Environmental Biotechnology, Microbial Biotechnology
  2. Assoc. Prof. Dr. Rasmina Halis - Pulp and Paper

Synopsis:

This program aims to introduce a sustainable pulping technology via chemical, mechanical, biological and hybrid approaches. Bio-pulping and bio-bleaching are introduced in order to provide a green pulping process. Raw materials used include, but not limited to non-woody and agro-fibres such as kenaf, oil palm biomass and bamboo. Nanocellulose and specialty paper as emerging products derived from pulping process are the highlight of this program.  Examples of specialty papers are water resistant paper, high durability paper and photo-catalytic paper. Pollution control and waste minimization involves the use of black liquor for value-added products.

 

Current Projects:

  1. Green nano-Zinc Oxide Superhydrophobic Bamboo Paper: The Biosynthesis, Characterization and Surface Interaction (FRGS-73,000)
  2. The Production of microfibrillated cellulose from bamboo fbres using chemimechanical approach (RUGS-39,000)
