In offset printing, efforts are currently aimed at reducing the use of inks containing mineral oils. We started using only mineral oil-free intensive printing inks in offset several years ago (UV inks excluded, see below). These inks are made entirely from vegetable oils and are therefore eco-friendlier, in addition, using intensive inks means that less ink is needed overall. Especially when it comes to the production of food packaging, the used printing inks mustn't contain any mineral oils. It is thus essential to make sure that if recycled paper is used, it must be free of mineral oils. The use of waste paper is more environmentally friendly than the use of virgin fibers. The Umweltbundesamt (Federal Environment Agency) therefore also advocates the use of mineral oil-free inks to further optimize the circular economy of graphic papers.
