Prof. Dr. Werner Sobotka


A short review about the existing European environmental signs will be given like :Blauer Engel, Nordic Swan, European lily and the Austrian environmental sign. Also the environmental certification like EMAS will be discussed. Is the printing industry really saving energy in future and are the technologies using bigger and more energy consuming machinery the right answers to a worldwide climate crisis. Also is there a big challenge replacing a lot of chemicals with not dangerous and hazardous products in future to make a big contribution to sustainability of printed products.
