Environmental Regulations for Printers, soon to be published by Jelmar Publishing Co., is a resource for those who coat, laminate and apply adhesives. It describes major environmental regulations, enforcement provisions, effects of non-compliance, and commentary on how to meet state, regional and local regulations.
The author, Fred Shapiro, shows how compliance can improve product performance and yield savings by reducing ink and solvent consumption, improving materials inventory, and making other measurable improvements within the printing plant.
The book includes 42 appendices with interpretations and guidance documents. A software disk provides forms and templates most printers use to complete compliance procedures.
Information about the book, which will sell for $385, is available from Jelmar Publishing by calling 516-822-6861, or by visiting the Internet site at www.jelmarpublishing.com.
