FLEXO Magazine : Golden Anniversary Commemorative Journal
Design for the Environment (DfE) Flexographic Printing Partnership begins as a unique voluntary effort between the printing industry and u.s. EPA that seeks to provide informa- tion about the advantages and disadvantages associated with solvent, waterborne, and UV-cured flexographic ink technolo- gies. The project assesses the performance, costs, environmen- tal and human health risks, and pollution prevention effects associated with these technologies. DfE's goal in working with flexographic printers is to help them make more informed choices now and in the future by easing the search for and evaluation of cleaner processes, products, and technologies. The "pilot" Flexo in High School program site-South Mecklenburg High School, Charlotte, NC. A new, four-color Mark Andy 830 flexo press was installed. 1993 1993-FFTA sponsors two, back-to-back, co-located late January Conferences: The Jan. 28 Environmental Conference, chaired by Dave Thompson; and the Jan. 29 ISO 9000 Conference, chaired by Linda Cubalchini. Highlights in- clude a keynote address, "Environmental Leadership is Good for Business," by Procter 8( Gamble's Dr. Deborah Anderson; as well as a general session where Peter Wright, Cobden Chadwick, outlines his experiences in pursing ISO certifica- tion. To date, Cobden Chadwick is the only press manufac- turer that is ISO certified. THE 19905 "The trade press is full of articles de- bating the pros and cons of recycling, biodegradability and incineration; and the one solution that everyone knows will work, is to reduce the amount of packaging. The shrink-sealed plastic bottle, faced with a paper label, inside a paper box, covered with plastic film, could become an endangered species. Complying with the regulations on the horizon will be onerous. "Flexo printers will have to under- stand regulations that might vary from state-to-state, county-to-county and city-to-city. Their packages will have to comply with the strictest regulations within the geographic regions in which they are sold." -Larry Jameson, Executive \l.R, BASF, deliverinq Forum 1990 Keynote Address Cong ratu lations Flexographic Technical Association OUR PARTNER IN 50 YEARS OF INNOVATION Innovation Advancement FIRST IN DOCTOR BLADES TODAY AND TOMORROW Process Control 220 Adams Street Riverside, NJ 08075 phone 856-461-9111 fax 856-461-9373 www:allisonblades.com
