Recycled pulp

Recycled pulp is also called deinked pulp (DIP), recycled paper which has been processed by chemicals to remove printing inks and other unwanted elements, freeing the paper fibres.

DIP is used as raw material in paper making. Many newsprint, toilet paper and facial tissue grades commonly contain 100 percent deinked pulp and in many other grades, such as lightweight coated for offset and printing and writing papers for office and home use. DIP makes up a substantial proportion of the furnish.
