Discussion

When and only when the nano ink can pass flotation deinking should this be considered. With all of the other inkjet printers reducing the available recycled fiber for same grade paper we sure don't need another source of fiber that will contribute to the accumulating tonnage to be be down-cycled.

I'm speculating that the presswork will go through the final consumer's home recycling. From there to the paper recyclers. Will the nano inks impact the ability for the paper to be recycled. There doesn't appear to be any discussion about this.
Also, I believe that nano particles can pass through human skin. Are there health risks associated with nano pigments?
