Abstract: Scarcity in forest-based raw materials has forced the paper industries to use inferior quality pulp produced from agricultural residues for papermaking. To improve the properties of the pulp, blending of good quality long fiber pulp is necessary. Synthetic polyester fibers may be used to replace the long fiber component in the furnish. Addition of short cut polyester staple fibers in different proportions to bagasse and wheat straw pulp has shown significant improvement in mechanical properties of paper produced from these pulps.
