Traditional flotation inkjet deinking has not been successful due to the hydrophilic nature as well as the submicron size of the ink. Furthermore, the pulping and deinking procedures of traditional hydrophobic ink and inkjet ink are always contradictory. Thus, it is much more difficult to remove ink in mixed printed paper. One possible solution for this challenge is to change the surface property of inkjet ink and increase the particle size by chemical reaction to solve the problem of mixed printed paper deinking.
