Short description of project
The main objective of the Action is to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of de-inking technology in line with the introduction and use of new printing methods and vehicles, increased customer expectations and environmental considerations. The expected benefits to the European pulp and paper industry will be improvements in quality and uniformity of de-ink pulp, more efficient and effective de-inking operations improvements in environmental credentials and development of cost effective solutions for difficult to de-ink inks and toners 
Short description of the task performed by Croatian partner
So far the Croatian activities are visible in five presentations given at the Plenary Sessions or Workshops, as well as in two Short-Term Scientific Missions, as follows: Branka Lozo in Grenoble 2005: The incidence of Indigo prints on newspaper deinkability;Zeljka Barbaric Mikocevic in Girona: Increasing the efficiency of chemical deinking flotation of Indigo print; Zeljka Barbaric Mikocevic in Grenoble 2006: The influence of the printing technique (conventional/digital) on the deinking effectiveness; Sonja Jamnicki in Bilbao: Multi-Stage Chemical Flotation of Food Packaging Prints; Branka Lozo in Bilbao:The efforts on the de-inkability of flexo prints. STSMs:  Branka Lozo (Zagreb, Croatia) to CTP (France) : The deinkability of flexo printed papers and digitally printed papers (January 2007) ; Sonja Jamnicki (Zagreb, Croatia) to LEPAMAP (Spain): Food Contact Analysis of Recycled and/or Deinked Pulp (February 2008).
