  • Soybean oil, also known as vegetable oil, is mainly used for human consumption. Soybean oil can also be used as a carrier for printing inks.
  • Soy ink is a kind of ink made from soybeans. As opposed to traditional petroleum-based ink, soy-based ink: is more environmentally friendly, is available in brighter colors, improves the life span of the printers, makes it easier to recycle paper, is more economic in the long run.
  • The soybean oil is blended with pigments, resins and waxes to make ink.
  • Soy ink is a helpful component in paper recycling because the soy ink can be removed more easily than regular ink from paper during the de-inking process and this allows the recycled paper to have less damage to its paper fibers and have a brighter appearance. The waste that is left from the soy ink during the de-inking process is not hazardous and it can be treated easily through the development on modern processes.
  • The process for soybeans typically consists of five steps: oilseed handling/elevator operations, preparation of soybeans for solvent extraction, solvent extraction and oil desolventizing, flake desolventizing, and oil refining.
  • Soy ink may be the solution to the environmental health and safety concerns of the printing industry.
  • Soy ink is available for newspapers, magazines, commercial printing, packaging, business forms and many other uses.
  • Soy ink apparently is making great strides in Asia, where soybeans originated more than 5,000 years ago.
  • At the end of the first marketing year for soy ink, only six newspapers were using it. Today, soy ink is being used by one-half of the nations 9,100 newspapers, including 75 percent of the 1,700 U.S. daily newspapers.
