This Ask PNEAC question is from:

There is a relatively large color and
b/w printing press facility, about
400-600 meters away from the faculty
residences at our University.

Is it possible, at such a distance, for
ink, solvent, etc. air concentrations
to be large enough to warrant
concern for human health?

We understand a proper evaluation
would require knowledge of the
specifics, but we would appreciate
knowing your best judgement of
whether the distance in question
would provide reasonable safety.
