1.1
Heatset-Role offset A Roll-end printing, in which the printing and non-printing areas of the printing plate are located on one plane. [0050] Rolling pressure is to be understood as meaning that the printing material of the machine is fed from a roll and not into individual sheets. The non-printing region is water-accepting and thus ink-repellent, while the printing area is capable of color-accepting and thus emits printing ink to the surface to be printed. The printed material is dried in a hot-drying oven.
1.2

Before the printing material comes into contact with the cylinder and the printing ink is released from the recesses, the excess printing ink is smeared from the non-printing areas.
1.3.2
rotary screen printing A roll-to-print job in which the printing ink by pressing through a porous printing form, in which the printing areas are open and the non-printing areas shall be transferred to the surface to be printed. In this case, only liquid printing inks are used which dry by evaporation of the solvent. Rolling pressure is to be understood as meaning that the printing material of the machine is fed from a roll and not into individual sheets.
1.3.3
Flexographic printing method, in the case of a printing press, in which the printing press is a printing press. The printing plates made of rubber or elastic photopolymers whose printing parts have been produced and liquid printing inks which dry by evaporation of the solvent.

A
Basic Requirements
When you apply a The reduction plan shall be subject to an emission reduction at least at the same level as would be the case for the respective plant in the event of compliance with the requirements of § 4 sentence 1 no. 1. In the event of compliance with the conditions set out in the first sentence, the operator may use any reduction plan which may be specifically set up for its installation. If solvent-free or solvent-free substitutes are still in development, contrary to the assumptions made when the reduction plan is established in accordance with Article 4, second sentence, and there is a foreseeable end to the development, the competent authority shall be responsible for: by the operator, grant an adequate extension of the deadline to implement its reduction plan at the request of the operator.

When applying the following reduction plan, the proof of the Do not require equivalence under section A, set 1:
1.
The operator submits the competent authority to the competent authority. (a) a reduction plan to reduce the average volatile organic compound content of the starting materials, in particular the coating materials and cleaning agents, or to increase the degree of solid use; to reduce the total emissions of volatile organic compounds from the plant to a certain percentage of the annual reference emission, the so-called target emission.
2.
The annual reference mission is calculated as follows: Annual reference mission = kg solids/a x Multiplication factor. It is the total mass of solids in the quantity of coating material and/or ink, paint, ink, adhesive to be determined annually. Solids are all substances in coating materials, printing inks, clear lacquers, lacquers and adhesives which solidify as soon as the water or the volatile organic compounds are evaporated (e.g. Binders, pigments, fillers in The annual reference emission shall be calculated by multiplying the determined total mass of solids by the corresponding multiplication factor from column 3 of the table below. The competent authority may adjust the multiplication factors referred to in individual installations in order to take account of the demonstrated increased level of solid use in the application of state-of-the-art application methods. carrying.

Guidelines for the use of a ransom balance to demonstrate the fulfillment of requirements The way the ransom balance is used depends on the respective a request to check. In addition to the subsequent reviews, the ransom balance also serves to determine solvent consumption in order to determine whether an installation falls within the scope of the Directive and which Requirements depending on the threshold must be met.
2.1
Determination of solvent consumption and emissions
2.1.1
Determination of solvent consumption LV is to be calculated according to the following relationship: LV=I1-O8
2.1.2
Determination of emissions to check compliance with a total emission limit value or compliance with the target emission of the reduction plan referred to in Annex IV, Section B, the To produce a solvent balance for the determination of emissions. Emissions E can be calculated on the basis of the following relationship from diffuse emissions F and emissions into exhaust emissions:
a) E=F + O1when determining diffuse emissions in accordance with point 2.2.1a or point 2.2.2a,
b) E=F + O1.1when determining the diffuse emissions according to point 2.2.1b or point 2.2.2b.
The calculated emission E is then with the target emission or, after it has been divided by the respective product parameters, with the specified Total emission limit value.
2.1.3
To assess compliance with the requirements of § 3 (4) (2) (b), the ransom balance shall be drawn up, to determine the overall emissions of all relevant activities. The result is then to be compared with the total emissions that would have been created if the requirements for each individual activity had been met.
