All label converters should be regularly reviewing their manufacturing process to understand how to minimize solid waste in their label and package production operations. 

Such waste comes from a variety of streams such as matrix waste, edge trim waste, press set-up and running waste, inspection waste, from printing plates, films, inks and their containers, and even hazardous wastes such as solvents, blanket wash, oil and grease, fountain solutions, photographic chemicals, acids and etching from gravure printing and the rags contaminated with these materials.
