Chemical Emissions: A Quantitative Approach to Product Stewardship for Printers in the 21st Century
Abstract:IBM's product stewardship program for printer chemical emissions is described. This program ensures chemical emissions from printing products comply with standards such as California Proposition 65, OSHA Permissible Exposure Limits, and others. This is accomplished by performing environmental chamber tests that measure chemical emissions emanating from printers. An overview of IBM's chamber testing program is discussed, along with methods developed to interpret chemical emissions data obtained from environmental chamber testing of printers. International chamber testing consensus methods are identified.

For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
