Abstract:

The report describes the research and development of the dry process originated at the Forest Products Laboratory for separating wastepaper from shredded household trash. The process, based on air classification, provides for removal of thermoplastic films. It also permits separation of the wastepaper by grade. Indications are that the recovered paper can be used successfully in a variety of products.
