Description Chemical wood pulp is made from wood chips that are boiled with chemicals. This process removes the lignin, one of the wood's major components, leaving behind a fibrous material that can be used for paper production. Soda/sulphate pulp is a type of wood pulp that has been soaked in sodium or potassium hydroxide which removes the lignin and other unwanted substances, such as the tannins, from the wood. Non-conifer wood pulp is typically from softwoods, such as aspen, and is bleached using chlorine or chlorine dioxide gas
