I have a question on calculating VOC emmissions from a lithographic press. We
use a water and blanket wash mixture. Example - If we use 60 gallons of blanket
wash and 40 gallons of water and after cleaning operations the waste is
collected. How much of the blanket wash voc's have been consumed? Obviously I
don't want to report 60 gallons of voc's being released.

Any help would be appreciated.

Oh, the blanket wash we are using is 74% aliphatic petroleum distallates
cas#64742-88-7
                            20% aromatic petroleum distallates cas#64742-94-5
                            12% aliphatic petroleum distallates cas#8042-47-5
                            1.8% napthalene cas# 91-20-3

My background is occupational safety and industrial hygiene, so please don't
assume I have any working knowledge of the press. LOL
