||It is expected that the emission of isopropyl alcohol from offset printing machines will soon be limited in the European Union. Ceramic cylinders which require water with less addition of isopropyl alcohol for dampening have come into use. The experience with this method in six cases is described. In four cases the new method proved to be as good as the conventional method with regard to the quality of the print. The addition of isopropyl alcohol could be cut from 10% or more to 5% or less with the new ceramic cylinders. In 2 cases no satisfactory results were achieved.
