The production of paper from Krajood waste mixed with waste paper from the office for community product development
Keywords:Krajood, Waste paper from the office, Community products
Krajood is economically important to the community in the south of Thailand. It is used to produce various agricultural products such as woven bags, biodegradable straws and glutinous rice baskets. This brings waste to the environment. This research aims to produce paper from Krajood waste mixed with waste paper from the office for the development of community product. By using a chemical pulping method. One the proper paper making formula was obtained the properties of the paper were tested, these include the morphological structure of the paper, standard weight of paper, paper thickness, paper strength, water absorption of paper and inflation in the thickness of the paper. The results showed that the best formulation for paper production, was sample 3. It exhibits a suitable morphological structure and strength for use in paper production. The standard weight of paper is 334.12 gram. The density of paper is 283.15 kg/m3. Tensile strength 8.18 N. Water absorption of paper 416.70% and paper thickness swell 98.55%. The paper product can be developed to handicrafts and packaging of local products that are environmentally friendly.
