Objective: The objective of this thesis was to see the effects of heavy offset inked supplements on a newsprint flotation deinking operation.
Coated and uncoated supplements were studied separately and in combination to see what quantities could be allowed to enter into a flotation deinking process without seriously reducing the quality of the resulting paper.
Goal: The goal of this thesis was to obtain a final product comparable in quality to the material in which these supplements were printed on.
This study should result in the ultimate reuse of a seldom used fiber source and eliminate the added expense of separation.
