New acidic organosolv pulping processes, such as Acetosolv, Formacell and Milox, promise to have superior potential in terms of purification selectivity and specific investment costs. Consequently, a thorough investigation of these new acidic pulping processes in comparison to state-of-the-art acidic magnesium sulfite technology was conducted. The impact of pulping and bleaching parameters on the physical and chemical characteristics was studied to compare process efficiency and selectivity for each type of pulp made from Eucalypt wood. In addition to a detailed analysis of the chemical composition and physical properties on a molecular and supramolecular level, the TCF-bleached dissolving pulps were tested for their applicability in viscose fiber production. The influence of pulp properties as determined by standard and advanced analytical methods on process performance and selected fiber properties is emphasized.
