Solvent Recovery South of the Border

With the advent of NAFTA, Mexico's package-printing industry, a major source of VOC emissions, is under increasing pressure to comply with envronmental regulations. One company, Grafo Regia, pursued an air pollution control process that has an economic payback compared to traditional oxidation.

Volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) find wide spread use in the gravure printing and flexible package printing industries. Though water based inks and coatings have made significant inroads into this industry, organic solvent based printing remains the method of choice for high quality and high volume printing. Most solvent based printing facilities in the USA have a device of some form to control emission of the VOC’s to the atmosphere.
