Inside Flexo: A Cleaner Run for the Money (EPA/744-V-98-001)
19 minutes; April 1998

This video provides useful tip to flexographic printers for working more
efficiently and saving money, while improving the environment. Veteran
printers share their success stories in the following areas: (1) managing
inks efficiently, (2) printing successfully with alternative inks, (3) making
the best use of press return inks, (4) using new cleaning methods that
improve efficiency, and (5) improving the bottom line through sound
environmental practices.

The Design for the Environment (DfE) Flexography Project is a voluntary
effort between the flexographic printing industry and the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency. Project partners -- including seven
trade associations representing over 1,600 flexographic printers as well
as ink manufacturers -- are currently evaluating solvent, waterborne,
and ultraviolet-cured flexographic ink technologies. The goal of the
Project is to provide flexographers with information that can help them
design an operation that is more environmentally sound, safer for
workers, and more cost-effective.
