Abstract

The objective of INGEDE Project 74 01 was to establish a European database of the recyclability of print products and to update an older German database. The main focus of the database was the deinkability of newspapers and magazines, but catalogues and telephone directories were also included. A total of 213 print products from all over Europe were evaluated. Results showed that the deinkability of newspapers was particularly important due to their high proportion in the recovered paper to be deinked. In the deinkability tests, 27% of all newspapers failed and were not suitable for deinking. All flexo and inkjet newspapers also failed the test, as well as a further 16 newspapers (out of 80) printed in offset coldest and digital newspaper with a UV cured pre-print. In Southern Europe, 50% of all investigated newspapers failed to meet the requirements of the Deinkability Scores scheme, whilst 38% in Northern Europe failed. The deinkability of magazines was generally found to be good , and only four samples out of 98 failed to meet the deinkability requirements. The most critical concern was the dirt speck area of the deinked pulp of uncoated offset and rotogravure prints. Flyers gave much poorer results than magazines, and nearly 40% were judged as not suitable for deinking. Telephone directories were difficult to deink due to the age of the printed products and because of dyed yellow and/or blue pages. Nearly 60% of the telephone directories did not meet the deinkability requirements. (8 fig, 6 tab)
