Lignin reactions – kraft pulping Lignin dissolution phases The overall effect of cooking time and temperature on kraft pulping can be estimated by a single numerical value calculated according to the concept of the so-called “H-factor” which has been developed by Vroom.1 In this method, the reaction rate at 100 °C is chosen as the
