I am forwarding this inquiry on behalf of Tracey.

Currently, I am working with a silk screening plant which uses water
based inks and no solvents during clean up, yet they are discharging
excess Zinc and Copper into waste water. The Copper is most likely from
the pigments, but it is a mystery as to the source of the Zinc. The
majority of the water discharged is used in cooling. I am seeking any
suggestions as to possible sources of Zinc in fabric printing operations.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
