Assessment of the Impact of Single Stream Recycling on Paper Contamination in Recovery Facilities and Paper Mills

The objective of this study is to assess the impact of single stream recycling (SSR) on paper contamination in recovery facilities and paper mills to determine to which extent SSR is responsible for the contamination of paper. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) which is a statistical analysis technique is going to be used to assess the recovered fiber materials contamination and its correlation with the SSR programs. Finally, new and promising practices and methods to decrease paper contamination will be investigated.
