Hot acid treatment and hot chlorine dioxide bleaching are two emerging technologies within the field of bleaching of hardwood kraft pulp. In this study, these two technologies are thoroughly investigated and compared with each other, and also with a reference standard ECF-sequence. A 2-stage bleaching sequence is also investigated. Interestingly, this latter sequence proves to offer superior results regarding many of the investigated parameters, not least bleaching chemical consumption to a given ISO brightness. Moreover, these investigations show that the results of hot acid treatment followed by a chlorine dioxide treatment without intermediate washing on the one hand and hot chlorine dioxide bleaching on the other differ markedly in terms e.g. of bleaching chemical consumption, bleaching yield and development of tensile strength. The hot chlorine dioxide bleaching offers many benefits compared to hot acid treatment followed by chlorine dioxide bleaching.
