The Waste Reduction Innovative Technology Evaluation (WRITE) project quantifies and compares wastes generated from the use of soy-based and petroleum-based inks in sheet-fed offset printing. Four petroleum-based inks and four soy-based inks were studied in a 4400 sheet work-and-turn print job. The amounts of each ink used, each cleaner used, wastes on cleaning rags, and wastes in the wash-up trays were measured for each print run. Each ink and each cleaner was analyzed for total solids and volatiles content. Quantities of air emissions, liquid wastes, solid wastes and costs were estimated and compared for the two print runs.
