Dear P2 Advocate:

Mark your calender for next Tuesday, December 9th at from 9:30 to 11:30
a.m. CST for the 1997 Green and Profitable Printing Videoconference. The
program will include a review of key environmental compliance issues for
small-medium lithographic printers, and a discussion of compliance
approaches, especially focusing on pollution prevention strategies. Issues
that will be considered include rag management, ink waste reduction,
reduction of alcohol indampening solution, and reducing VOC's from various
sources including press cleaning. A theme throughout the program is that by
building good process controls into their operations, printers will improve
quality, reduce wastes and improve profitability. Video footage used for
the program will feature interviews of printing experts. To find out where
to view the videoconference in your area, contact your state contact listed
in  the *Conferences & Training* section of the Printers National
Environmental Assistance Center site at www.p!
neac.org.  Or call Marilyn Dole at 608-262-0910 or mcdole@ epd.engr.wisc.edu.)
