Abstract : A laboratory-prepared green liquor applied to fresh pulp chips by a dip treatment effectively prevented loss in wood substance from fungal action and prevented temperature rise in simulators of chip piles. These results suggest that green liquor at the concentrations used acts as a fungicide and an enzyme inhibitor. Long-term tests under field conditions are planned to confirm these results. (Author)
