Aspects of the global utilization of nonwood plant fiber pulp are reviewed compared with that of woodpulp and waste paper, referring the data from FAO Yearbook 1994 and PPI July 1995. The ratio of nonwood pulp produced in the world attained to ca. 12% of all pulp produced in 1994. Characteristic differences between nonwood pulp and wood pulp, which are important to paper making use of them, are also reviewed on the point of morphological features of component cells and chemical composition of each pulp.
