Abstract

The flexographic and gravure printing houses are the major suppliers of flexible packaging substrates, which are principally based on solventbased ink systems. The Environment Protection Authority (E.P.A) has issued a Code of Practice, in 1990, that targets the Victorian flexographic and gravure industry, with guidelines that suggest an 80% reduction in solvent emissions by the year 2000. This thesis investigates the technologies available to the flexographic and gravure industries to comply with this Code of Practice.
