The Graphic Arts Industry is a source of volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions. The study was conducted to document the reported overall control efficiency for VOC at a number of rotogravure and flexographic printing facilities. The primary conclusions from the study are: (1) the use of capture and control systems and the use of water-based ink systems have been demonstrated to be effective and reliable in achieving greater than 90 percent overall VOC reduction rotogravure and flexographic printing facilities; (2) facilities can be retrofitted to achieve 90 percent VOC reductions; and (3) permanent total enclosures meeting EPA criteria have been successfully installed and operated at rotogravure and flexographic printing facilities.
