Description

De-inking of newsprint

Format

A data frame with 27 observations on the following 3 variables.

alkali

amount of alkali in the solution

hardness

hardness of the water - an ordered factor with levels 50 < 150 < 250

bright

a measure of brightness

Details

One step of recycling newsprint is to "de-ink" the newsprint, that is to remove the ink. The brightness of the paper pulp after a de-inking process is a measure of how well the process to remove the ink worked.
