Graphic Arts Printers with Heatset Web Offset use catalyst based pollution=

control units to destroy VOC emission.
When catalyst loses its efficiency it is replaced by a batch of new catalys=
t.

The removed catalyst being "Spent Material" meets the definition of a
"Solid Waste" generally characterized as a non hazardous waste. MSDS
of some catalyst manufacturers suggests Landfill as a disposal method
for such spent catalyst. =
=
Instead of lanfill, spent Catalyst waste can essentially be used benefici=
ally
for reclamation, and kept out of landfill. Future risk and liability
associated with landfill is thus avoided and most importantly, valuable
resources are conserved.

In most cases cost to the generator is nothing, $0.00.
