Discusses the use of microbial enzymes in several aspects of pulp and paper processing. Examines the mechanisms for enzyme bleaching and presents information on the commercialization of enzymatic bleaching with microbial xylanases. Discusses the use of cellulases to enhance fibrillation and remove contaminants from recycled fibers.
