Film Scrap

Description

Trimming film prior to transfer to the plate generates film scrap. Additionally, the film used to transfer the image becomes a waste once it is no longer needed.

Best Management Practices & Pollution Prevention

Spent film and trim pieces can be recycled off-site. Consider eliminating the use of film entirely by converting to computer to plate systems.
