The production of recycled paper for packaging materials is becoming one of the most important activities of paper mills. However, the use of recycled paper as a raw material cause an important increase of dissolved colloidal substances in industrial waters, known as anionic trash, which highly increases water conductivity and cationic demand disturbing the function of commonly used retention agents (cationic starch, cationic polyacrylamides). On the other hand, several investigations demonstrated that lignocellulose nanofibers (LCNF) can be used as a reinforcement agent in papermaking, but its retention can be affected by anionic trash. This work aims to study the technical viability of the application of triticale straw lignocellulose nanofibers in recycled fiber suspensions at industrial scale. For this purpose, a complex retention system of LCNF was proposed to improve the reinforcement efficiency of LCNF. Results show that with the addition of only 1.5% (w / w) of LCNF is possible to fulfill the physical-mechanical requirements of the commercial test liner, and the addition of 4.5% of LCNF would allow the reduction of basis weight and additives or the development of applications with higher mechanical requirements.
