The European Recovered Paper Council (ERPC) has adopted a new assessment scheme, the deinkability scorecard, to promote the eco-design of printed products, which will ensure their recyclability and also promote sustainable production processes.

The scheme is designed to allow printers, publishers and other members of the paper value chain to identify which types of printed paper products have the best recyclability when they are deinked. Five parameters – luminosity, colour, cleanliness, ink elimination and filtrate darkening – are considered in a widely accepted standardised test, Method 11, developed by the International Association of the Deinking Industry (INGEDE).
