Deinkability evaluation

The modified INGEDE 11 method is a laboratory simulation of the most important steps of flotation deinking (defibration and flotation). It enables evaluation of the efficiency of removal of printing inks during industrial deinking process. Results are expressed in terms of fibre yield and ISO brightness of obtained fibres.

Deinkability evaluation is requested for acquisition of some eco-labels and is becoming an important parameter of printed products, expressing their potential for  paper recycling and re-use.
