Bagasse was used as raw material to pulp various NSSC, Soda and Kraft liquors and evaluated as corrugating medium. A new pulping procedure with the M & K Digester was developed in order to reach maximum temperature at the shortest practical time.

It was found that a 10% Active Alkali at 5% Sulfidity and an NSSC liquor at pH 10 with 15% SO2 on pulp gave suitable strength properties. The NSSC cook gave a higher yield but a pulp with more shives.
