Plate cleaning solvent for intaglio printing

Can anyone help me with this question on cleaning solvents for
intaglio printing?

Does anyone have any information on alternative solvents for plate
washing and cleanup (hand wipe) of petroleum based inks used in
intaglio printing.

Currently, a mineral spirit formulation (Varsol) is used, and the
desire is to either substitute with another solvent that is economically
feasible, or to try a commercially avaliable solvent delivery system
that would use a smaller amount of the solvent.
