Subject: Emissions From Ink Manufacture

          Some of you may be interested in the following article.

          In the July 1996 issue of the Journal of the Air & Waste
          Management Association an article was published titled "Air
          Emissions from the Manufacture of Inks." The authors, J.B.
          Phillips, G.R. Mysore, J.F. Griffiths, and R.V. Bailey,
          used mass balance measurements to determine that 44.7lb/ton
          (2.188%) of losses occured during ink manufacture.
          Currently, AP-42 suggests an emission factor of 30lb/ton or
          1.5%. The new emission factor was made on an average of 32
          batches from two common sizes of mixers in a plant the
          authors considered to be better than average.

          Emission factors are often used to prepare permits such as
          Title V operating permits under the Clean Air Act
          Ammendments of 1990.

          Any comments?
