    This link should be read by all. It is a defining moment in recylability of paper and the processes used to print them.

    Pat the xeikon link is the missing link for social responsibility in print manufacturing using paper substrates. Drupa is going to have dozens of social irresponsible inkjet printers.

    If the printer manufacturers want to keep making the inkjet printers have them responsible for the recycling. They can invest in the deinking mills specifically design to remove the ink jetted ink. Why should the rest of the industry suffer. The inkjet manufactures made the mess let them clean it up.
