GLRPPR Sector Resource: Pollution Prevention for the Printing Industry: A Manual for Technical Assistance Providers

Title:
Pollution Prevention for the Printing Industry: A Manual for Technical Assistance Providers

Abstract:
From industry demographics to tips on ink-recovery systems, if it's printing, this guide covers it. This manual contains several case studies, and is broken down into the five main printing processes: lithography, flexograhy, gravure, letterpress, and screen printing. All are described in depth, along with the major pollution prevention concerns associated with each. Written in language technical enough to be useful to P2 professionals, but readable enough to be easily accessed, the manual includes numerous diagrams, detailed illustrations, and an extensive annotated bibliography for access to more detailed information. (Length: Hard copy is 130 pages + appendices)
