With a proper planning and management, the agriculture waste material can give benefit to many production industries. The studied crop is pineapple (Ananas Comosus) leaf. The objective of this work was to analysis the chemical pulping and papermaking properties of pineapple leaf and; to investigate the fiber morphology of properties of those crops. At first, chemical pulping of pineapple leaf was conducted in this analysis followed the physical and mechanical properties. The result showed that in chemical pulping, reached 79.26% pulp yields had been produced and the strength properties: tear index, tensile index, burst and fold verified that they were of an acceptable quality for papermaking. This crop morphology was observed by Scanning Electron Microscopic (SEM), which showed a condensed composition of fiber structure. This study can promote the green technology in developing a friendly product and suitable to be used as an alternative pulp in paper making industry.
