Magnesium hydroxide can offer economic and process benefits in pulp bleaching. Cost savings from the reduction or elimination of certain bleach chemicals can be achieved by employing CellGuard®MH magnesium hydroxide powder as an alternative alkali and cellulose protector. Additional benefits such as a reduction in BOD/COD and anionic trash can improve wastewater treatment and papermaking […]
