The physical, optical and mechanical characteristics of pulp and paper made from waste durian rinds as an alternative raw material for papermaking were investigated in this study. The durian rinds pulp was produced through chemi-mechanical pulping (CMP). Local Malaysia naturally dried durian rinds were treated with 10% Sodium Hydroxide (NaOH) based on oven dry (o.d) weight of durian rinds in room temperature for 2 hours and pulped by the refiner mechanical pulping (RMP) process. Overall characteristics tests for durian rinds pulp and 60 gsm unbleached and unbeaten paper sheet were conducted according to TAPPI and MS ISO standards. Experimental results show that durian rinds have great potential characteristics to be applied as newly explored non-wood based raw material for pulp and paper industry
