Uxbridge, U.K., May 19th, 2011 – Xerox has received “good de-inkability” certifications for their digital colour production systems from the International Association of the Deinking Industry (INGEDE). The ratings were given to the Xerox iGen4™ Press, 700 Digital Colour Press and Colour 800/1000 Presses.
INGEDE, a globally recognised association made up of leading European manufacturers and paper mills, conducts a widely accepted, standardised test to identify the types of printed paper products that have the best recyclability when they are deinked.
The “good de-inkability” rating means the production systems produced high scores, more than 90 out of 100, in the evaluation of five parameters – luminosity, colour, cleanliness, ink elimination and filtrate darkening.
Deinking refers to the removal of ultraviolet and electron beam printing inks – an important step in the paper recycling process. More crucial in the production of graphic paper, which requires high paper quality, inks that are not deinkable spoil the recycling process by either reducing the brightness of the pulp or by leaving ink specks on the recycled paper. 
INGEDE is a globally recognised association made up of leading European manufacturers including 40 paper mills and research departments of paper mills worldwide. It aims to ensure and improve the recyclability of paper products and work toward developing a good and cost-efficient deinking process.
