Xerox has received its ‘good de-inkability' certifications, for its Xerox iGen4 Press, 700 Digital Colour Press and Colour 800/1000 digital colour production systems, from the International Association of the Deinking Industry(INGEDE).

INGEDE, is a globally recognised association, which conducts a standardised test to identify the types of printed paper products that have the best recyclability when they are deinked.

The ‘good de-inkability' rating shows that the production systems produced scores of more than 90 out of 100 in the evaluation of five parameters - luminosity, colour, cleanliness, ink elimination and filtrate darkening.

Deinking is the process by which ultraviolet and electron beam printing inks are removed from paper, which is an important step in the paper recycling process.

This process is more crucial in the production of graphic paper, which requires high paper quality.

Inks that are not deinkable deteriorate the brightness of the pulp or can leave ink specks in the recycled paper.
