Eco-Friendly Printing

We follow a solid strategy in order to protect the environment.

Eco-friendly printing in our industry is more alive than ever.

CEVAGRAF SCCL, GREEN PRINTERS.

We follow a firm strategy committed to protecting the environment, which is part of our cooperative philosophy. For us, being an ecological printer not only means a good idea, it is a way of life, and that is why we follow these principles in all fields of our activity.

This strategy is based on common sense and on the experience as printers since 1986, the year the company was founded. Common sense has shaped the environmental guidelines that we have set out, which you can find on this page down below.

And as a guarantee of this strategy we have obtained the Certificate in Good Environmental Practices awarded by the "Gremi de la Indústria i Comunicació Gràfica de Catalunya" a few years ago.

CEVAGRAF' GREEN PRACTICES.

We integrate good practices into our processes in order to achieve greater efficiency in the use of energy and a reduction in the environmental impact of our activity. Our commitment to the environment goes back many years.

GREATER ELIMINATION OF POLLUTING DISCHARGES.

1. WE RECIRCULATE WATER IN THE PLATE DEVELOPMENT PROCESS

We use recirculated water in the plate development stage, that is to say, the water is stored in a processor tank and is processed by an osmosis system that guarantees its reuse. In conventional non-adapted systems the water used is supplied directly, wasting many litres per day.


2. WE RECIRCULATE WATER IN THE PRINTING MACHINES

We are equipped with a water reuse system in the printing machines. Before its installation, the water circuit had to be emptied every 15 days, whereas now it is sufficient to do it every 6 months. On the other hand, the system separates the water from the solid waste by evaporation, after which the latter is sent for recycling.


3. WE RECYCLE CHEMICALS FROM OUR CTP DEVELOPERS

We also have a chemical recycling machine. Prior to its installation, the liquid developer, once used, was delivered in liquid form for recycling. The use of the recirculation system allows us to separate, on the one hand, a small solid waste without risk of volatile emissions, and on the other hand, water, which is used both for cleaning our facilities and toilets.


4. WE REUSE REACTIVE POWER

We use capacitor banks that allow us to take advantage of reactive power. This energy is the one released when a machine is set in motion. Given the amount of machinery and the high consumption in a printing facility, it is really important to be able to take advantage of it.


5. SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES IN MANAGEMENT DEPARTMENTS

We reuse office paper by always printing on both sides, using black ink, and taking advantage of used paper whenever possible. We manage orders digitally, minimising the consumption of paper as a support of administrative information.


6. WE USE VEGETABLE OIL-BASED INKS

We use vegetable oil-based inks because they are less polluting. We have installed an ink channeling system for our printing machinery: this system consists of 300 litre containers for each colour of the four-colour process and a number of pipes that lead the ink to the ink fountain of each machine. This system drastically reduces the consumption of plastic caused by the purchase of ink in 1 liter containers.


7. WE OPTIMISE PAPER CONSUMPTION

We buy customized the paper format required for each job, in order to optimize consumption and achieve an environmental impact as low as possible. We plan the work always seeking to minimise the remnants of unused paper. At a production level, we adjust the waste in all of our print jobs in order to reduce it to a minimum.


8. WE ALWAYS USE HIGH-RESOLUTION SCREENING

We use AM 200 lpi high-resolution screening in 100% of our print jobs. The greater dot fineness compared to that of the conventional screen (lower percentage of inked surface) allows us to achieve savings in water and ink consumption of up to 30%, in addition to achieving greater print contrast and a color saturation much richer in nuances and intensity, because the information reaching the human eye is larger, although it may appear the opposite.
