This study was to investigate the effects oi agitation speed, pulp concentration, ion concentration ill the slurry solution, printed area of the waste newspaper, immerwng time and the temperature on the defiberation process for the waste newspaper. The defikration efficiency at 50% is twice that of 16%. The efficiency is improved as two times according to elevate the agtation speed as two times in the range of 200-2WO r.p.m.. Defiberation with NaOH 1X10-'M solution has higher efficiency than that of NaOH 1 x 1 0 - M solution as 3 times at the conditions of 16%, 1200 r.p.m, and 1% pulp concentration The temperature of immersing salut~on aifects on the efficiency more than immersing time does. Increasing the printed area of newspaper decreases the velocity of defiberation. The alkaline solution is effective to defiberate and the defiberation efficiency at the same dosage of alkalinity is in the order a1 NaOH) KOH) Na,SiO, ) Na,CO, ) Ca(OH)2.
