This paper discusses the challenges a tissue manufacturer faces when using recycled furnish in the production of a premium tissue product. The challenges are many; among them are brightness, bulk, softness and dirt count. Never to be forgotten are the various issues that are caused by stickies. The issues are reviewed and possible solutions are presented. The discussion starts in the deinking plant: Is it part of the operation or is market deink pulp being used? Depending on the issue the solution may be better applied in the deinking plant rather than in the tissue mill. The paper offers a broad review of the subject, but there is an emphasis on the use of enzyme based products for the control of stickies and also for quality enhancement.
