Subject: File No. PLP08-0021, Ratna Ling Retreat Center
35755 Hauser Road, Cazadero Road
APN: 109-230-024 and -018

I would like to address the issue of Hazardous Materials at Ratna Ling Retreat. This is both a
public health and safety and environmental issue.

Ratna Lings Master Use Permit Application (3/26/13) trivializes the hazardous substances and
materials in the printing operation by stating that the printing and manufacturing process only use
non-toxic ink. (Exhibit A). The Subsequent Mitigated Negative Declaration states that the only
hazardous waste are rags used in the clean-up of the presses and small amounts of waste water,
and therefore hazards are not significant. (Section 8.a., pg. 24 SMND 2/28/14)

The SMND that you will be voting on Tuesday April 8, 2014 uses these assertions to conclude
that this project will not have a significant impact to health, safety, and the environment.

In reality Dharma Press at Ratna Ling Retreat uses highly toxic and highly flammable chemicals
in large quantities, and if their proposal for expansion and unlimited book production is approved,
even larger quantities of hazardous materials will be brought to our community with little or no
oversight. (Exhibit B) By not disclosing this information in their Master Use Permit Application,
the operators of Ratna Ling and Dharma Press put not only the environment at risk, but also their
volunteer workers, our own volunteer Fire Department, and our Emergency Medical Services
personnel.

I have attached to this letter:
1. the list of chemicals that was provided in the 2004 MND when Dharma Press agreed to
print only 100,000 books per year at Ratna Ling (Exhibit B)

2. the chemicals reported to Emergency Services in 2009 when Dharma Press claimed on
its website to be publishing 400,000 books at Ratna Ling. (Exhibit C)

3. The Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) which the operators of Dharma Press did not
attach to either of the Mitigated Negative Declarations, nor to the Hazardous Materials
Inventory Statement they filed at county Emergency Services. Most fire departments
require the MSDS to be filed along with the quantities of substances used. (Exhibit D)

The owners of Ratna Ling failed to report the complete list of hazardous chemicals they utilized
in both of their Mitigated Negative Declarations for Ratna Ling Retreat (2004 and 2014), which
negates the following sections of their Subsequent Mitigated Negative Declaration (2014) and
clearly alters that designation from not significant to significant:

The following issues related to public health and safety are not addressed in the Subsequent
Mitigated Negative Declaration (2014) filed by the operators of Ratna Ling and Dharma Press:
1. Who is going to monitor and verify that this printing operation is maintaining
the proper work place health and safety training and apparatus (i.e. wash
stations, ventilators)? Certainly not Cal OSHA, or the unions. This is a
volunteer operation. OSHA does not regulate volunteers.
2. Who is checking with the local fire department to ensure that they have the
proper training, equipment, and knowledge to handle a fire involving the
chemicals listed, some of which cannot be doused with water?
3. What procedure is in place in case of a toxic spill? Who will report it, respond
to it, and how long will that cleanup take?
4. If a toxic spill occurs, it could penetrate the aquifer.
5. Many of these chemicals require special handling by users and transporters
(workers, drivers, etc.). These also should be listed in the traffic study.


6. If Dharma Press had a disaster (i.e. chemical explosion) how would the
volunteers get medical help? How long would it take? What is the mortality
rate for victims that are one hour away from a full hospital? How long would
it take to evacuate 1 or 10 or 90 people?

Without having this 2014 Subsequent Mitigated Negative Declaration peer reviewed, how can
anyone be sure that any of the information it contains is accurate? We now know that the
hazardous materials report it contains is certainly inaccurate. How can PRMD monitor Ratna
Ling to insure the publics safety?
We now also know that the 2004 Mitigated Negative Declaration was grossly inaccurate and that
PRMD failed to monitor its repeated and constant violation by the owners of Ratna Ling and
Dharma Press.

Yours truly,

John Howland

Resort use permit issued in 2000, and simply modify existing uses that the County has
already deemed to be salutary and appropriate.
Ratna Ling is aBuddhist retreat center and all retreats that are authorized by the
Master Use Permit either focus on Buddhist practices or are designed to expose non-
Buddhists to Buddhist practices. Every retreat participant is reminded verbally, and in
writing, to maintain the sacred environment at Ratna Ling. All retreats include daily
meditation sessions and KumNye Yoga. Kum Nye Yoga is agentle Tibetan Yoga
practice that focuses on healing and bringing energies together to work smoothly and
harmoniously. Inkeeping with Buddhist requirements, all meals arevegetarian. Every
guest cottage contains information about Buddhist practices and every retreat participant
has access to the center's library containing an array of books and other resources on the
Buddhist traditions and practices.
It is sincerely hoped that the Master Use Permit will constitute acomprehensive
planning document that enables both Ratna Ling and the County to administer this
special property with greater clarity and efficiency in the years ahead.
ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP
The Center is leader in environmental stewardship at the project site. Gene
Gretchen, is an internationally recognized leader in environmentally conscious practices
and he is the Co-director and Facilities Manager of the Center.
3
Mr. Gretchen has
implemented and maintains many environmentally sensitive practices on the project site.
The Center only uses non-toxic, vegetable-based ink at its printing presses. Ratna Ling's
landscaping is drought tolerant. The Center captures rain water off the roofs of some of
its buildings. Almost all faucets and fixtures on the project site are low flow. The Center
maintains an on-site organic garden that supplies most of the produce used in the
communal kitchen. Ratna Ling's volunteers, guests, and work study participants move
about the site by foot, bike or electric golf carts, resulting in insignificant Green House
Gas Emissions. The Center uses sustainable green products wherever possible, such as
the cork floors in its main conference center building. Retreat participants are also
reminded to bemindful of the environment and Ratna Ling's commitment to the best
possible environmental practices.
COMMUNITY CONTRIBUTIONS
The Center remains committed to working harmoniously with its neighbors and
County officials as it continues its unique and indisputably worthy mission. While
remaining true to the spiritual purposes of its projects, which have drawn positive world-
wide attention to Sonoma County, the Center has more than distinguished itself by its
numerous contributions to the economic welfare of the County as awhole, and by many
acts of generosity to the immediate Seaview Ridge community.
3A copy of Mr. Gretchen's CV is attached to this update.

With respect to theproposed printing operations, hereviewed the wastewater discharge for the
proposed ancillary printing facility, consisting of7 gallons weekly, andasked TNMC to develop
aproposal for dealing with this amount of discharge, such as aholding tank that would be
pumped out periodically. DM is currently researching alternatives to meet this concern.

EMERGENCY OVERVIEW
DANGER!
EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE - EYE AND MUCOUS MEMBRANE IRRITANT
- EFFECTS CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM - HARMFUL OR FATAL IF
SWALLOWED - ASPIRATION HAZARD
High fire hazard. Keep away from heat, spark, open flame, and other ignition
sources.
If ingested, do NOT induce vomiting, as this may cause chemical pneumonia (fluid in the lungs). Contact
may cause eye, skin and mucous membrane irritation. Harmful if absorbed through the skin. Avoid
prolonged breathing of vapors or mists. Inhalation may cause irritation, anesthetic effects (dizziness,
nausea, headache, intoxication), and respiratory system effects.
Long-term exposure may cause effects to specific organs, such as to the liver, kidneys, blood, nervous
system, and skin. Contains benzene, which can cause blood disease, including anemia and leukemia.

3. HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION (rev. Dec-97)

EYES
Moderate irritant. Contact with liquid or vapor may cause irritation.
SKIN
Practically non-toxic if absorbed following acute (single) exposure. May cause skin irritation with
prolonged or repeated contact. Liquid may be absorbed through the skin in toxic amounts if large areas of
skin are exposed repeatedly.
INGESTION
The major health threat of ingestion occurs from the danger of aspiration (breathing) of liquid drops into
the lungs, particularly from vomiting. Aspiration may result in chemical pneumonia (fluid in the lungs),
severe lung damage, respiratory failure and even death.
Ingestion may cause gastrointestinal disturbances, including irritation, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, and
central nervous system (brain) effects similar to alcohol intoxication. In severe cases, tremors,
convulsions, loss of consciousness, coma, respiratory arrest, and death may occur.
INHALATION
Excessive exposure may cause irritations to the nose, throat, lungs and respiratory tract. Central nervous
system (brain) effects may include headache, dizziness, loss of balance and coordination,
unconsciousness, coma, respiratory failure, and death.
WARNING: the burning of any hydrocarbon as a fuel in an area without adequate ventilation may result
in hazardous levels of combustion products, including carbon monoxide, and inadequate oxygen levels,
which may cause unconsciousness, suffocation, and death.
CHRONIC EFFECTS and CARCINOGENICITY
Contains benzene, a regulated human carcinogen. Benzene has the potential to cause anemia and other
blood diseases, including leukemia, after repeated and prolonged exposure. Exposure to light
hydrocarbons in the same boiling range as this product has been associated in animal studies with
systemic toxicity. See also Section 11 - Toxicological Information.
MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE
Irritation from skin exposure may aggravate existing open wounds, skin disorders, and dermatitis (rash).
Chronic respiratory disease, liver or kidney dysfunction, or pre-existing central nervous system disorders
may be aggravated by exposure.
4. FIRST AID MEASURES (rev. Dec-97)
EYES
In case of contact with eyes, immediately flush with clean, low-pressure water for at least 15 min. Hold
eyelids open to ensure adequate flushing. Seek medical attention.
SKIN
Remove contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated areas thoroughly with soap and water or waterless
hand cleanser. Obtain medical attention if irritation or redness develops.
INGESTION
DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Do not give liquids. Obtain immediate medical attention. If spontaneous
vomiting occurs, lean victim forward to reduce the risk of aspiration. Small amounts of material which
enter the mouth should be rinsed out until the taste is dissipated.
INHALATION
Remove person to fresh air. If person is not breathing, ensure an open airway and provide artificial
respiration. If necessary, provide additional oxygen once breathing is restored if trained to do so. Seek
medical attention immediately.

5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES (rev. Dec-97)
FLAMMABLE PROPERTIES:
FLASH POINT: -45
o
F (-43
o
C)
AUTOIGNITION TEMPERATURE: highly variable; > 530
o
F (>280
o
C)
OSHA/NFPA FLAMMABILITY CLASS: 1A (flammable liquid)
LOWER EXPLOSIVE LIMIT (%): 1.4%
UPPER EXPLOSIVE LIMIT (%): 7.6%
FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS
Vapors may be ignited rapidly when exposed to heat, spark, open flame or other source of ignition.
Flowing product may be ignited by self-generated static electricity. When mixed with air and exposed to
an ignition source, flammable vapors can burn in the open or explode in confined spaces. Being heavier
than air, vapors may travel long distances to an ignition source and flash back. Runoff to sewer may
cause fire or explosion hazard.
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA
SMALL FIRES: Any extinguisher suitable for Class B fires, dry chemical, CO2, water spray, fire fighting
foam, or Halon.
LARGE FIRES: Water spray, fog or fire fighting foam. Water may be ineffective for fighting the fire, but
may be used to cool fire-exposed containers.
During certain times of the year and/or in certain geographical locations, gasoline may contain MTBE
and/or TAME. Firefighting foam suitable for polar solvents is recommended for fuel with greater than
10% oxygenate concentration - refer to NFPA 11 Low Expansion Foam - 1994 Edition.
FIRE FIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS
Small fires in the incipient (beginning) stage may typically be extinguished using handheld portable fire
extinguishers and other fire fighting equipment.
Firefighting activities that may result in potential exposure to high heat, smoke or toxic by-products of
combustion should require NIOSH/MSHA- approved pressure-demand self-contained breathing
apparatus with full facepiece and full protective clothing.
Isolate area around container involved in fire. Cool tanks, shells, and containers exposed to fire and
excessive heat with water. For massive fires the use of unmanned hose holders or monitor nozzles may
be advantageous to further minimize personnel exposure. Major fires may require withdrawal, allowing
the tank to burn. Large storage tank fires typically require specially trained personnel and equipment to
extinguish the fire, often including the need for properly applied fire fighting foam.
See Section 16 for the NFPA 704 Hazard Rating.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES (rev. Dec-97)
ACTIVATE FACILITY SPILL CONTINGENCY or EMERGENCY PLAN.
Evacuate nonessential personnel and remove or secure all ignition sources. Consider wind direction; stay
upwind and uphill, if possible. Evaluate the direction of product travel, diking, sewers, etc. to confirm spill
areas. Spills may infiltrate subsurface soil and groundwater; professional assistance may be necessary
to determine the extent of subsurface impact.
Carefully contain and stop the source of the spill, if safe to do so. Protect bodies of water by diking,
absorbents, or absorbent boom, if possible. Do not flush down sewer or drainage systems, unless
system is designed and permitted to handle such material. The use of fire fighting foam may be useful in
certain situations to reduce vapors. The proper use of water spray may effectively disperse product

vapors or the liquid itself, preventing contact with ignition sources or areas/equipment that require
protection.
Take up with sand or other oil absorbing materials. Carefully shovel, scoop or sweep up into a waste
container for reclamation or disposal - caution, flammable vapors may accumulate in closed containers.
Response and clean-up crews must be properly trained and must utilize proper protective equipment
(see Section 8).
7. HANDLING and STORAGE (rev. Dec-97)
HANDLING PRECAUTIONS
******USE ONLY AS A MOTOR FUEL******
******DO NOT SIPHON BY MOUTH******
Handle as a flammable liquid. Keep away from heat, sparks, and open flame! Electrical equipment
should be approved for classified area. Bond and ground containers during product transfer to reduce the
possibility of static-initiated fire or explosion.
Special slow load procedures for "switch loading" must be followed to avoid the static ignition hazard that
can exist when higher flash point material (such as fuel oil) is loaded into tanks previously containing low
flash point products (such as this product) - see API Publication 2003, "Protection Against Ignitions
Arising Out Of Static, Lightning and Stray Currents.
STORAGE PRECAUTIONS
Keep away from flame, sparks, excessive temperatures and open flame. Use approved vented
containers. Keep containers closed and clearly labeled. Empty product containers or vessels may contain
explosive vapors. Do not pressurize, cut, heat, weld or expose such containers to sources of ignition.
Store in a well-ventilated area. This storage area should comply with NFPA 30 "Flammable and
Combustible Liquid Code". Avoid storage near incompatible materials. The cleaning of tanks previously
containing this product should follow API Recommended Practice (RP) 2013 "Cleaning Mobile Tanks In
Flammable and Combustible Liquid Service" and API RP 2015 "Cleaning Petroleum Storage Tanks".
WORK/HYGIENIC PRACTICES
Emergency eye wash capability should be available in the near proximity to operations presenting a
potential splash exposure. Use good personal hygiene practices. Avoid repeated and/or prolonged skin
exposure. Wash hands before eating, drinking, smoking, or using toilet facilities. Do not use as a
cleaning solvent on the skin. Do not use solvents or harsh abrasive skin cleaners for washing this product
from exposed skin areas. Waterless hand cleaners are effective. Promptly remove contaminated
clothing and launder before reuse. Use care when laundering to prevent the formation of flammable
vapors which could ignite via washer or dryer. Consider the need to discard contaminated leather shoes
and gloves.

Guinea pig sensitization: negative
CHRONIC EFFECTS AND CARCINOGENICITY
Carcinogenicity: OSHA: NO IARC: YES - 2B NTP: NO ACGIH: YES (A3)
IARC has determined that gasoline and gasoline exhaust are possibly carcinogenic in humans. Inhalation
exposure to completely vaporized unleaded gasoline caused kidney cancers in male rats and liver tumors
in female mice. The U.S. EPA has determined that the male kidney tumors are species-specific and are
irrelevant for human health risk assessment. The significance of the tumors seen in female mice is not
known. Exposure to light hydrocarbons in the same boiling range as this product has been associated in
animal studies with effects to the central and peripheral nervous systems, liver, and kidneys. The
significance of these animal models to predict similar human response to gasoline is uncertain.
This product contains benzene. Human health studies indicate that prolonged and/or repeated
overexposure to benzene may cause damage to the blood-forming system (particularly bone marrow),
and serious blood disorders such as aplastic anemia and leukemia. Benzene is listed as a human
carcinogen by the NTP, IARC, OSHA and ACGIH.
This product may contain methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE ): animal and human health effects studies
indicate that MTBE may cause eye, skin, and respiratory tract irritation, central nervous system
depression and neurotoxicity. MTBE is classified as an animal carcinogen (A3) by the ACGIH.
12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION (rev. Jan-04)
Keep out of sewers, drainage areas and waterways. Report spills and releases, as applicable, under
Federal and State regulations. If released, oxygenates such as ethers and alcohols will be expected to
exhibit fairly high mobility in soil, and therefore may leach into groundwater. The API (www.api.org)
provides a number of useful references addressing petroleum and oxygenate contamination of
groundwater.
13. DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS (rev. Dec-97)
Consult federal, state and local waste regulations to determine appropriate disposal options.

and explosion-proof equipment. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.
Small spill
Methods for cleaning up
Personal protection in
case of a large spill
Chemical splash goggles. Chemical-resistant protective suit. Boots. Chemical-resistant gloves.
Self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) should be used to avoid inhalation of the product.
Suggested protective clothing might not be adequate. Consult a specialist before handling this
product. CAUTION: The protection provided by air-purifying respirators is limited. Use a positive
pressure air-supplied respirator if there is any potential for an uncontrolled release, if exposure
levels are not known, or if concentrations exceed the protection limits of air-purifying respirator.
7. Handling and storage
Handling Do not ingest. Never siphon by mouth. If ingested, do not induce vomiting. Put on appropriate
personal protective equipment (see section 8). Workers should wash hands and face before
eating, drinking and smoking. Do not get in eyes or on skin or clothing. Do not breathe vapor or
mist. Use only with adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is
inadequate. Do not enter storage areas and confined spaces unless adequately ventilated. Store
and use away from heat, sparks, open flame or any other ignition source. Use explosion-proof
electrical (ventilating, lighting and material handling) equipment. Use non-sparking tools. Take
precautionary measures against electrostatic discharges. To avoid fire or explosion, dissipate
static electricity during transfer by grounding and bonding containers and equipment before
transferring material.
Storage Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in a segregated and approved area. Store away
from direct sunlight in a dry, cool and well-ventilated area, away from incompatible materials (see
section 10). Eliminate all ignition sources. Separate from oxidizing materials. Keep container
tightly closed and sealed until ready for use. Containers that have been opened must be carefully
resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Do not store in unlabeled containers. Use
appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination.

Some states may enforce more stringent exposure limits.
While specific OELs for certain components may be shown in this section, other components may be present in any mist, vapor or
dust produced. Therefore, the specific OELs may not be applicable to the product as a whole and are provided for guidance only.
Control Measures Use only with adequate ventilation. Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation or other
engineering controls to keep worker exposure to airborne contaminants below any recommended
or statutory limits. The engineering controls also need to keep gas, vapor or dust concentrations
below any lower explosive limits. Use explosion-proof ventilation equipment.
Hygiene measures Wash hands, forearms and face thoroughly after handling chemical products, before eating,
smoking and using the lavatory and at the end of the working period. Appropriate techniques
should be used to remove potentially contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated clothing before
reusing.
Personal protection
Eyes Avoid contact with eyes. Safety glasses with side shields.
Skin and body Avoid contact with skin and clothing. Wear suitable protective clothing.
Respiratory Use only with adequate ventilation. Do not breathe vapor or mist. If ventilation is inadequate, use
a NIOSH-certified respirator with an organic vapor cartridge and P95 particulate filter.
CAUTION: The protection provided by air-purifying respirators is limited. Use a positive pressure
air-supplied respirator if there is any potential for an uncontrolled release, if exposure levels are not
known, or if concentrations exceed the protection limits of air-purifying respirator.
Hands Wear gloves that cannot be penetrated by chemicals or oil.
The correct choice of protective gloves depends upon the chemicals being handled, the conditions
of work and use, and the condition of the gloves (even the best chemically resistant glove will
break down after repeated chemical exposures). Most gloves provide only a short time of
protection before they must be discarded and replaced. Because specific work environments and
material handling practices vary, safety procedures should be developed for each intended
application. Gloves should therefore be chosen in consultation with the supplier/manufacturer and
with a full assessment of the working conditions.
Consult your supervisor or Standard Operating Procedure (S.O.P) for special handling instructions.

Product/ingredient name NTP IARC OSHA
Aspiration of this product into the lungs can cause chemical pneumonia and can be fatal.
Aspiration into the lungs can occur while vomiting after ingestion of this product. Do not siphon by
mouth.
Middle distillate: From skin-painting studies of petroleum distillates of similar composition and
distillate range, it has been shown that these types of materials often possess weak carcinogenic
activity in laboratory animals. In these tests, the material is painted on the shaved backs of mice
twice a week for their lifetime. The material is not washed off between applications. Therefore,
there may be a potential risk of skin cancer from prolonged or repeated skin contact with this
product in the absence of good personal hygiene. This particular product has not been tested for
carcinogenic activity, but we have chosen to be cautious in light of the findings with other distillate
streams.
Occasional skin contact with this product is not expected to have serious effects, but good
personal hygiene should be practiced and repeated skin contact avoided. This product can also be
expected to produce skin irritation upon prolonged or repeated skin contact. Personal hygiene
measures taken to prevent skin irritation are expected to be adequate to prevent risk of skin
cancer.
Diesel exhaust particulates have been classified by the National Toxicological Program (NTP) to be
a reasonably anticipated human carcinogen. Exposure should be minimized to reduce potential
risk.
Naphthalene has been reported to cause developmental toxicity in mice after oral exposure to
relatively high dose levels, but developmental toxicity was not observed in NTP (National
Toxicology Program) sponsored studies in rats and rabbits. Ingestion or inhalation of naphthalene
can result in hemolysis and other blood abnormalities, and individuals (and infants) deficient in
glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase may be especially susceptible to these effects. Inhalation of
naphthalene may cause headache and nausea. Airborne exposure can result in eye irritation.
Naphthalene exposure has been associated with cataracts in animals and humans.
Other Toxicity Data
Potential chronic health effects
Carcinogenicity Contains material which may cause cancer, based on animal data. Risk of cancer depends on
duration and level of exposure.
Other information
IARC :
2B - Possible carcinogen to human.
3 - Not classifiable as a human carcinogen.

appear to be without
significant health risk. Acute overexposure may result in irritation of the throat and
lungs. Chronic exposure to high-concentrations of aerosols or mists to laboratory
animals has resulted in non-specific symptoms related to the nervous system,
gastrointestinal tract, and lungs.
Skin Contact: Avoid skin contact. This product in non-irritation to the skin upon direct
contact. Prolonged or repeated contact may result in contact dermatitis which is
characterized by dryness, chapping, and reddening. This condition may make the skin
more susceptible to other irritants, sensitizers, and disease. Pre-existing skin conditions
may make the skin more susceptible and facilitate uptake by this route.
Eye Contact: Avoid eye contact. This product may be slightly irritating to the eyes
upon direct contact. This product has a low vapor pressure and is not expected to present
a hazard to the eyes at ambient conditions. Exposure to high concentrations of vapors
may be irritations to the eyes.
Ingestion: Do not ingest. Ingestion of small quantities is usually nonfatal unless
aspiration occurs. Severe oral intoxication will lead to intense burning of the throat and
may result in drowsiness, dullness, numbness, and headache followed by dizziness,
weakness, and nausea. Loss of consciousness and convulsions followed by death may
result. See Notes to Physician section below.
Emergency & First Aid Procedures
Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with large amounts of water and continue flushing for 15
minutes until irritation subsides. If irritation persists, seek medical attention.

Skin: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated area thoroughly with soap
and water. If redness or irritation occurs, seek medical attention.

Inhalation: This material has a low vapor pressure and is not expected to present an
inhalation exposure at ambient conditions. If mist or exposure is generated when the
material is heated or handle, remove victim from exposure. If breathing has stopped or is
irregular, administer artificial respiration and supply oxygen if it is available. If victim is
unconscious, remove to fresh air and seek medical attention.
Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. Seek immediate medical attention.


Notes to Physician: Aspiration may lead to chemical pneumonitis which is characterized
by pulmonary edema and hemorrhage, and may be fatal. Signs of lung involvement
include increased respiration rate, increased heart rate, and a bluish discoloration of the
skin. Coughing, choking, and gagging are often noted at the time if aspiration.
Gastrointestinal discomfort may develop, followed by vomiting, with risk of aspiration.

controls and protective equipment for each task performed.

Hazardous components ACGIH TLV OSHA PEL AIHA WEEL OTHER
Methylenebis(phenylisocyanate) 0.005 ppm TWA
0.02 ppm (0.2
mg/m3) Ceiling
None None

Engineering controls: Work should be done in an adequately ventilated area (i.e., ventilation
sufficient to maintain concentrations below one half of the PEL and other
relevant standards). Local exhaust ventilation is recommended when general
ventilation is not sufficient to control airborne contamination below
occupational exposure limits.

Respiratory protection: No personal respiratory protective equipment normally required. Do not inhale
vapors and fumes. Concentrations greater than the TLV can occur when MDI
is sprayed, heated or used in a poorly ventilated area. A positive pressure,
supplied-air respirator or a self-contained breathing apparatus is
recommended when: airborne concentrations of isocyanate are known to
exceed 0.005 ppm; operations are performed in a confined space or area with
limited ventilation; material is heated or sprayed. Observe OSHA regulations
for respiratory use (29 CFR 1910.134).

Eye/face protection: Safety glasses with sideshields or chemical safety goggles should be worn if
there is a risk of splashing. Full face protection should be used if the potential
for splashing or spraying of product exists.

Agency
Waste Reduction Evaluation of
Soy-Based Ink at a Sheet-Fed
Offset Printer
Beth Simpson, Pamela Tazik, Gary Miller, and Paul Randall
Risk Reduction
Engineering Laboratory
Cincinnati, OH 45268
Research and Development
This Waste Reduction and Innova-
tive Technology Evaluation project fo-
cused on the use of soy-based inks as
a substitute for petroleum-based inks
in sheet-fed offset printing. The goal of
the study was to evaluate the waste
reduction and economic effects of us-
ing soy-based inks in place of the pe-
troleum-based inks traditionally used
in sheet-fed offset printing. The main
potential environmental benefits
claimed for soy-based inks are that they
are a renewable resource and emit less
amounts of volatile hydrocarbons dur-
ing the printing process. No published
studies verify the claim of reduced air
emissions or quantify other environ-
mental aspects of using soy-based inks
such as the amount of liquid wastes
generated and cleaners required. Other
reported benefits of soy-based inks are
that they are biodegradable in landfills
and are more conducive to cleanup with
degradable and less toxic cleaners than
are petroleum-based inks.
This Project Summary was developed
by EPAs Risk Reduction Engineering
Laboratory, Cincinnati, OH, to announce
key findings of the program demon-
stration that is fully documented in a
separate report (see ordering informa-
tion at back).
Introduction
The impetus for developing soy-based
inks initially came from the oil shortages
of the 1970s that threatened the supply
of petroleum-based chemicals. Now, in-
creased emphasis on improving worker
safety and reducing environmental emis-
sions is motivating the printing industry to
seek cleaner technologies. In the 1980s,
soy-based inks were first used in offset
web presses for printing newspapers,
mainly for presumed environmental ben-
efits. In the late 1980s, soy-ink formula-
tions were marketed for sheet-fed offset
presses.
Sheet-fed soy inks are defined as those
that have a minimum of 20% soy oil by
volume. The soy oil replaces petroleum
oils in the ink vehicle and varnish compo-
nents. Use of the soy oil affects color,
drying, and other operating characteristics
of the inks. Soy-based inks used in sheet-
fed presses still contain at least 10% pe-
troleum oils. Research is continuing to
increase the proportion of soy and other
vegetable-based oils in these ink formula-
tions while maintaining satisfactory print-
ing characteristics.
The Office of Printing Services (OPS)
at the University of Illinois is the operating
partner in this study. They are considered
a medium size, in-plant printer and gross
about $4.5 million annually. They agreed
to enter into this cooperative project be-
cause of their commitment to active re-
search participation and out of a desire to
be a model environmentally aware print
shop. They were one of the first sheet-fed
offset presses in the United States to use
soy-based inks.
Approach
Data for this study was collected during
a full-scale print run on a Miller TP104
Plus
*
six-color press in July 1992 at the
OPS. The print job evaluated was a 4400
sheet, six-color, work-and-turn. Only four
EPA/600/SR-94/144 September 1994
2
of the six colors were included in the study
because the type of ink used for two col-
ors was not changed between the runs.
All inks included in the study were manu-
factured by the same company, Handschy,
Inc. of Bellwood, IL.* In-plant measure-
ments consisted of weighing the contain-
ers of inks, blanket cleaners, and roller
cleaners used during makeready and print-
ing at each press unit before and after
each print run. Cleanup rags were weighed
before and after each print run. Wastes in
the wash-up trays were weighed at each
press unit at the end of each run. Samples
of each type and color of ink and each
cleaner used were analyzed at the same
temperature as the press for total solids
and volatile content at the Hazardous
Waste Research and Information Centers
(HWRIC) Hazardous Materials Laboratory.
The operators at OPS use the same
cleaners for both petroleum-based and
soy-based inks. They had previously tried
aqueous and less volatile organic clean-
ers and had not found any satisfactory
substitutes. Problems identified with some
of the cleaners they tested were that they
required more labor, dried much slower,
and sometimes left a film on the presses
that had to be removed in an additional
step.
Results
Ink Use
During the two print runs studied,
makeready for the petroleum-based ink
run was considerably more involved than
that for the soy-based run. This was
caused by excess moisture in the original
batch of paper and not by differences in
the inks. This difference in the two runs
affected ink and blanket cleaner usage
and waste paper generated. The excess
moisture in the paper caused it to curl and
wrinkle during feeding into the press. This
problem was not a result of the type of ink
being used for that run but because the
paper had been stored in high humidity
conditions before the first run. Because of
this, about 25% more pages were printed
using petroleum-based inks, which makes
a comparison of inks and cleaners used
and waste generated between the two
runs difficult. These differences were com-
pensated for to the extent possible in
evaluating results of in-plant measure-
ments.
The study results showed that the pe-
troleum-based ink run required larger
quantities of three of the four colors of ink
than did the soy-based ink print run (Table
1). The amount shown in the g/100 sheets
printed column compensate for the differ-
ence in the number of sheets printed dur-
ing makeready. The % difference column
compares the amount of petroleum-based
ink used with the amount of soy-based ink
used. For these specific print jobs, in to-
tal, approximately 17% more petroleum-
based inks were used on a per sheet
printed basis.
Cleaner Use
The amount of blanket cleaners used is
shown in Table 2. Almost 46% more blan-
ket cleaners were used during the petro-
leum ink run (3,455.4g compared with
2,368.0g). Some of this difference can be
attributed to the larger amount of blanket
cleaners used during the longer makeready
that occurred during this run. The amount
of blanket cleaner used during makeready
was not recorded separately from that used
during press cleaning at the end of the
print run. The amount of additional clean-
ers used for that purpose during the print-
ing run could not be directly measured; it
would not necessarily be directly propor-
tional to the amount of paper printed.
Therefore, an equivalent comparison can
not be made between the amount of blan-
ket cleaners used for each print run.
At the end of each printing run, roller
cleaners were used to clean up the
presses. Their use was not affected by
differences in makeready, but there was a
difference in the way the presses were
cleaned at the end of the two runs. At the
end of the petroleum ink run, the ink in
two of the stations was not changed. Also,
since the same colors were used in the
next run, each ink station was not cleaned
as thoroughly as it was at the end of the
second run with soy inks. The amounts of
each roller cleaner used for each color
and type of ink are shown in Table 3.
Overall, about 30% more roller cleaners
were used for the soy inks. This was ex-
pected since the stations were cleaned
more thoroughly at the end of the soy-
based ink run. Both inks appeared to re-
quire approximately the same amount of
cleaners and effort to remove from the
presses. On average in typical practice,

of these materials were spilled during the
two runs. To clean the various rollers and
blankets, several rags were saturated with
each cleaner and were used to wipe down
the press. As a result, the rags contained
some highly volatile inks and cleaners. An
undeterminable portion of these cleaners
and inks ended up in the washup trays.
Rather than determining the rapidly chang-
ing amount of liquids on the rags immedi-
ately at the end of the print run, the rags
were dried and the amount of dried solids
on the rags was weighed. About 60%
more solids were on the rags used to
clean the presses after the petroleum ink
run. Since more inks and cleaners were
used in that run, apparently much of these
materials ended up on the cleanup rags.
The amount of liquids in the washup
trays from this study was measured di-
rectly at the end of the print runs. Almost
10% more liquids were generated in the
washup trays after the petroleum ink run.
This liquid was a mixture of inks and vari-
ous cleaners. The amount of each ink and
each cleaner that ended up in these trays
and the rags (less the amount evaporated
and on printed product) could not be di-
rectly measured.
The amount of each cleaner used to
saturate the rags was not metered out
precisely by the press operators so that
differences between the two runs in the
amounts used were mostly the result of
operator variability when they poured
cleaners on the rags and not the results
of the type of ink being cleaned. We ob-
served no reason for there to be a consis-
tent difference in the amount of liquid
wastes generated by the two types of inks
studied. Differences resulted from opera-
tor variability, extended makeready during
the petroleum ink run, and more thorough
cleaning conducted at the end of the soy
ink run. It can not be concluded that one
ink generated more liquid wastes than the
other.

the amount of cleaner used for the two
inks would be expected to be about the
same.
At the end of the petroleum-based ink
run, 663.8 g of ink and cleaner mixed
waste was in the washup trays. By com-
parison, there was 604.5 g at the end of
the soy-based ink run. This approximately
10% difference can be attributed to the
extended makeready at the beginning of
the petroleum-based ink run. On average
in typical practice, the amount of cleaner
usage for the two inks would be expected
to be the same.
Volatile Components
All inks had less than 6% volatile com-
ponents, and there were significantly less
volatile components in the soy-based inks
than in the petroleum-based inks. The pe-
troleum-based inks had an average of
about 4.6% volatile components compared
with an average of about 0.8% for the
soy-based inks. Thus, on average, the
soy-based inks only had about 17% of the
amount of volatiles as the petroleum-based
inks. The cleaners contained more than
97% volatile components except for one
roller cleaner that contained about 88%.
Based on these laboratory results and
on the amount of inks and cleaners used
(Tables 1 and 2), the amounts of solids
and volatiles in the inks and cleaners were
calculated (Table 4). The amounts of
volatiles were used to estimate the total
mass of air emissions. Over 90% of the
liquid wastes originated from the inks. As
for the volatiles, over 99% originated from
the cleaners in both cases.
Because of the difficulty of directly mea-
suring the amount of emissions from the
many sources on the press, the printed
papers, and the waste containers, a worst
case assumption was made that air emis-
sions were equal to the volatile content of
the materials used. Thus, for the petro-
leum-based ink run, 3,930.15 g were cal-
culated to be evaporated compared with
3,004.30 g for the soy-based ink run. This
was about 31% more emissions. As de-
scribed above, even after adjusting for
differences in makeready, about 17% more
petroleum-based ink was used. In addi-
tion, the petroleum-based inks had a higher
volatile content (4.6% compared with
0.77%). Just in terms of ink used, there
were 0.39 g/sheets of volatile emissions
from the petroleum inks compared to 0.23
g/100 sheets for the soy inks. This is
about 70% more emissions to the air for
an equivalent amount of printing with pe-
troleum inks.
As shown in Table 4, the mass of
volatiles estimated to be emitted from the
inks is less than 1.0% of the total mass
estimated to be emitted from the inks and
cleaners. Since most of the air emissions
were from the cleaners, less than 1% over-
all reduction in air emissions resulted from
using the soy-based inks. The longer the
print run the greater the reduction in vola-
tile emissions from using soy inks.
Liquid Components
The two main liquid wastes from the
printing press were from washup trays
and inks and cleaners on used rags. None

Solid Waste
During makeready for the petroleum-
based ink run, 1375 waste sheets were
generated. The reverse side of 100 waste
sheets were reused during makeready for
the soy-based ink print run. This is the
amount of solid waste generated directly
during these print runs. No other contain-
ers of solid wastes were observed. Addi-
tional solid waste that may be generated
in printing include trimmings and excess
number of pages printed to compensate
for losses that may occur during folding,
binding and any other final preparation
steps. Because the soy inks generally
spread further (by an average of about
17%), less used ink containers may be
generated with those inks. The amount of
the other solid wastes would be unaf-
fected by the type of ink used. In this
case, the difference in makeready waste
resulted from moisture in the paper at the
beginning of the print run and not from
difficulty with using the inks.
Press alignment and ink metering was
automated for the press used in this study.
Based on observations of manually oper-
ated presses at this and other facilities,
automation or efficient press set-up, rather
than the choice of ink, results in less solid
waste being generated during printing.
Once operators are familiar with the use
of either the petroleum or soy inks, then
the amount of solid waste generated dur-
ing makeready will not be noticeably dif-
ferent. In both cases, more waste paper
might be generated on some jobs be-
cause of difficulties in obtaining accept-
able colors or other print quality factors. In
this regard, neither ink appears to have a
clear advantage over the other.
Costs
The main cost factor considered was
that of raw materials. No equipment ex-
penditures were required by OPS to switch
from using petroleum to soy inks. There
was a difference in the amount of labor
involved in the two print runs but that was
due to the problems with paper at the
beginning of the first run and the fact that
cleanup was more rigorous at the end of
the second run. Neither of these differ-
ences was due to the type of ink being
used. The operating conditions of the
press, such as temperature and speed,
were the same for each ink so there was
no difference in overall rate of production
or utilities used because of the type of ink
used. Insurance, monitoring requirements,
reporting and recordkeeping, and permit
requirements are the same for each type
of ink. Any differences in future costs for
remediation or property damage would be
minimal. Employee health costs would
slightly favor the use of soy-based inks
because of reduced employee exposure
to breathing released chemicals. All the
quantified cost factors are for the Miller
TP 104 press only and not for the entire
facility at OPS.
The purchase prices of raw materials
(inks, cleaners, and paper) for this print
job are approximately the same for both
types of ink. Generally soy inks cost about
10% more. The average purchase price
for both the soy inks and petroleum inks
is about $8.00/lb (or $0.018g). Actual costs,
depending on the color, range from about
$4.00 to $12.00/lb. Costs do vary, how-
ever, when the amount of materials used
for petroleum inks is compared with the
amount of materials for soy inks. On an
equivalent basis of ink used during print-
ing and typical makeready, the overall cost
savings in ink used for the soy-based ink
print run was estimated to be $1.17. This
cost difference is not a major factor in ink
selection. Higher costs are involved in
printing including labor, materials such as
paper, equipment amortization, and utili-
ties. The portion of total printing costs
allocated to inks is usually very small.
When adjusted to the amount of accept-
able product printed, the difference be-
tween cleaner costs for the petroleum and
soy-based ink runs for this print job was
only 5 cents. This difference would be
greater if the cleaning after the petroleum-
based ink run had been more thorough.
Because the same cleaners were used
for both inks and on average there would
be no difference between the two inks in
the amount of cleaner needed, costs for
cleaning would not be expected to differ.
Discussion
Overall, about 17% less soy ink com-
pared with petroleum ink was used for the
print job studied. Because less amounts
of volatile hydrocarbons are emitted from
the soy-based inks, air emissions were
less. Since the inks and cleaners continu-
ously evaporate during use and the waste
inks and cleaners end up mixed together
in washup trays and on the cleanup rags,
it was difficult to determine the proportion
that evaporated during the actual printing
process. Ultimately, most if not all of the
volatiles in the inks and cleaners will ei-
ther evaporate, be discharged to the wa-
ter (such as from a commercial laundry)
or be containerized and sent to a landfill.
Some of these emissions will occur at the
print shop, some perhaps after shipment
of the printed product, and some at waste
management facilities. The proportion of
volatilization that will occur in any one
place will vary depending on how the waste
materials are managed. For comparison
purposes, it was assumed in this study
that all the air emissions occurred at the
print shop.
An important factor that influences the
amount of waste generated per unit of
production is the length of the print run.
Some uses of ink (and resulting wastes
generated) in the printing process are fairly
consistent among print jobs. For instance,
the amount of ink required to coat the
rollers and plates for each revolution is
relatively consistent. A certain amount of
waste is expected for every print job, but
a higher proportion of waste is produced
per raw material input on shorter print
jobs, such as the one monitored here.
With longer print jobs, a greater percent-
age of the ink used would be applied to
acceptable product.
To most printers, there are little or no
perceived differences in the cost of using
soy-based inks because the raw material
cost is slightly higher or equivalent to pe-
troleum-based inks. The cost difference is
more than offset by the fact that the soy
inks spread almost 20% further and do
not release as much volatile organic chemi-
cals. Less tangible benefits of using soy
inks (company image as being environ-
mentally friendly, improved employee re-
lations due to a perceived healthier working
environment, and customer preference for
products) are major factors considered by
printers. If customer response to product
quality is negative, printers will not adopt
a new ink. At OPS, their experience has
been that customers find the quality of the
product to be acceptable, and many pre-
fer to have their job printed with soy-based
inks.
A company also must consider the will-
ingness of its workers to switch to and
use soy inks and the time it takes for
operators to become skilled in using these
inks. Understandably there may be some
excess waste generated during such a
change. At OPS, there was some initial
resistance to the new inks. Formulations
of soy inks in sheet-fed offset presses
were new. In the past few years, these
formulations have improved and the press
operators at OPS have gained the experi-
ence necessary to produce high quality
images. Presently, the employees prefer
to use soy-based inks on this particular
press. A major reason for this is that the
soy inks are very similar to petroleum-
based inks to work with and clean from
presses. If an alternative cleaner was used
that took the operators longer or required
more effort for the soy inks then there
would be considerable resistance and cost.
5
In addition to using soy-based inks, there
are other strategies printers can use to
reduce wastes from the sheet-fed offset
printing. Since most emissions were from
use of the cleaners, these emissions could
be reduced if aqueous or less volatile
cleaners were used. The press operators
at OPS have not found any of the alterna-
tive products they tried to be acceptable.
It should be kept in mind that the use of
less volatile cleaners may increase liquid
wastes.
Another strategy to reduce waste would
be to reduce the use of cleaners and inks.
This can be done in two ways; both may
involve additional capital for equipment.
One way is to recover or reuse waste inks
and cleaners. Installing a solvent still to
recover chemicals from the washup tray
wastes and possibly reusing those chemi-
cals in formulating cleaners might be fea-
sible. Some large printers have reportedly
adopted this approach.
A second way to reduce cleaner and
ink usage would be to purchase auto-
matic blanket washers and ink roller train
systems. Literature from one manufacturer
of this equipment claims that as little as
220 to 275 mL of cleaning solvent can be
used during a print run when the auto-
mated systems are in use. Although this
would not eliminate the need for hand
cleaning, it could greatly reduce the
amount of cleaner used and, thus, the
emissions from the cleaners. It could also
reduce employee exposure to potentially
harmful substances. An automatic blanket
washer could reduce cleaner use by up to
90%. It should be noted that on some
presses where these systems have been
installed the operators actually increased
use of the cleaners because, even during
a print run, the blankets can be cleaned
without stopping the press. Automatic ink
handling systems allow this type of press
to be operated with about 80% less ink in
the fountain.
The automatic blanket washer and ink
handling systems also reduce makeready
and cleanup times, saving the press crew
time and exposure to volatile compounds.
At OPS, it was estimated that such a
system would have a payback of about 3
yr. Most cost savings would be expected
in the cost of cleaners and in reduced
cleanup time.
Overall, soy inks have some environ-
mental and other advantages for sheet-
fed offset printers. The main environmental
advantage with soy inks is that they re-
lease less than 20% of the mass of vola-
tile organic chemicals compared to
petroleum inks. The soy inks also spread
about 15% further, which offsets the small
difference in cost that currently exists. Re-
portedly, recycling of soy ink printed pa-
per also has some advantages. In this
study all other factors including makeready
time, appearance of printed product, and
cleanup effort were essentially equivalent
between the two types of inks.
