Enhancing the Absorbency of Bagasse through Enzymatic Delignification

Enhancing the Absorbency of Bagasse through Enzymatic Delignification

Suitability of the Bagasse fibres to be used for the absorbent hygiene products were improved by enzymatic delignification process, which is the removal of the structural polymer lignin from plant tissue to increase the absorbency of the fiber which is the main requirement for sanitary napkins. Bagasse fibres were delignified in an eco-friendly method using the laccase enzyme and the delignification process was optimized using Box-Behnken experimental design. These delignified fibres were still stiff and may not be suitable for applications in hygiene products.
