In Malaysia, kenaf was only introduced recently. Kenaf stem consists of two distinct parts, the long fibre bast and the short fibre core; and both have different chemical compositions. Due to differences in fibre length and chemical properties, they are not recommended to be pulped together. Separation of bast from the core in the pulping line will increase the production cost. Studies based on locally available kenaf for pulp and paper production are still limited.
