samples for process analysis. The new automated stickies measurement method allows (i) determination of the three-dimensional (3D)
morphology of screened particles (without any deformation) and (ii)
classification of the particles as stickies among contaminants. This
is achieved by a combination of laser triangulation and local nearinfrared spectroscopy (NIR).
Measurement of macrocontaminants in pulp samples and their
classification allow meaningful evaluation of their specific removal.
Chemical nature and amount of the macrocontaminants coming
from different raw materials were studied and were shown to be very
different in two different mills. In an Asian mill, a low removal of
pressure sensitive adhesives (PSAs) in the process (46 percent) was
found in comparison with high removal of other stickies (99 percent).
Applications of this device are shown in this study, while the new
on-line sensor for macrocontaminant analysis is being developed.
This study demonstrates how mills can analyze stickies removal
throughout the recycling process. As a consequence, they could
control the process depending on the chemical nature of incoming
stickies contamination.

The papers summarized here are from the November
2017 issue, featuring special recycling content; and the January 2018
issue, featuring special coating content. TAPPI Journal is an online

STICKIES
Improved deinking and stickies removal
Cesar Basilio
Previous work had shown that a novel flotation deinking reagent
using modified kaolin was able to more efficiently separate and remove
ink and dirt particles from recovered paper. The mechanism for this
reagent is based on the ability of the modified kaolin to act as a collector for the fine ink, dirt, and contaminant particles.
Deinking mills using this reagent experienced deinked pulp with an
increase in brightness and lower dirt count values. Further work has
been carried out to determine whether this mechanism can be used to
improve the removal of stickies in recovered pulp. Test results showed
that use of this modified kaolin together with a reagent capable of
effectively separating the sticky contaminants from the fiber improved
the removal of stickies. The synergy of this reagent with the modified
kaolin further improved ink and dirt removal.
MACROCONTAMINANTS
New automated method for macrocontaminant analysis:
industrial applications
Sylvie Ossard, Patrick Huber, Pascal Borel, Davy Soysouvanh,
and Thierry Delagoutte
In recycled paper processes, stickies are the origin of many production disturbances. In this paper, we present how the recently developed
method for macrocontaminant analysis was used with industrial

by laser triangulation, and an NIR head analyzes chemical composition

DEINKING
Deinking process water flotation: An innovative solution to
improve deinking and papermaking processes efficiency
Thierry Delagoutte, Bruno Carré, and Elisa Zeno
High and uncontrolled surface-active substances (SAS) concentrations in deinking line process waters strongly disturb flotation deinking. Indeed, their adsorption at air/water and ink/water interfaces
stabilizes air bubbles and ink particles, reducing ink collection during
flotation. In addition, foam stabilization promoted by SAS reduces
froth drainage and consequently enhances suspended solids losses.
All in all, selectivity of flotation is negatively affected by excessive
SAS concentrations.
Floating process water with adapted technology, a patented solution, is an efficient way to decrease SAS concentration and thereby
recover flotation deinking selectivity. Researchers successfully tested
this concept at industrial scale. First-loop clear filtrates of a deinked
pulp line (for newsprint production) were floated. At steady state,
this treatment allows a 20 percent reduction of the SAS concentration
