The possibility of deinking newsprint with organic solvents, acetone and perchlorethylene, were examined by varying solvent mixtures, temperature of extractions, number of extractions, and consistency of extractions. Promising results were obtained in finding optimum conditions for the variables above. Yields obtained were over 94%. Solvents were recovered by distillation.
