RR Donnelly in Warsaw, IN uses gravure inks and they have a recycling process for their inks, but it's mostly catalogs and other paper-based printing. Their solvent is a toluene-based material. Contact me personally for a contact name at Donnelly.

I have a client who is a former printer
(gravure on polyethylene) who has about
4,500 pounds of various (3 or 4)types of
Sun Chemical pigments in a solvent base.
These are left over from about two years
ago when they stopped this process. They
are looking to get this material to
anyone who can use it. They state that the
materials might also be used for screen
printing. They might also print onto
polyester or PVC.
