Chemicals are needed at all stages proceeding from the manufacture of pulp through to the creation of paper products and the inks for printing.

The pulp and paper industry represents one of the largest markets for chemicals. We're going to start with the chemical pulping process, which requires caustic soda (sodium hydroxide) to remove the lignin from wood.

As the process progresses through the papermaking, printing, and publishing process, an array of chemicals is used for adhesives, paper coatings, optical brightening, inks, and de-inking.

Alternative applications are the manufacture of plywood and the production of cellulosic fibers used in textiles.
