Printing United Alliance Plans TAGA Tech Talks Virtual Event

Printing United Alliance will host TAGA Tech Talks, a free, two-part webinar series addressing two issues affecting the printing and graphic arts industry: life cycle assessment (LCA) and expanded color gamut (ECG). Industry thought leaders will offer insight on each day of the event, held from 2-3:30 p.m. ET on July 19 and 21. Registration is available online at

The first webinar takes place on July 19 as a panel discussion covering Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), a systematic analysis of the potential environmental impacts of products or services during their life cycle. The session will also cover how LCA data can influence consumer buying habits, boost investor confidence, and serve as the basis for informative business decisions. During this session, LCA subject matter experts will discuss basic questions such as when to consider conducting an LCA and the benefits of completing this assessment for consumer products and services.

Panelists for this session include:
• Gary Jones, Director, Environmental, Health, and Safety Affairs, Printing United Alliance
• Nikola Juhasz, Global Technical Director, Sustainability, Sun Chemical
• Dr. Christoph Koffler, Technical Director, Sustainability, Sphera

On July 21, TAGA Tech Talks will cover Expanded Color Gamut, a graphic reproduction approach that utilizes additional colors beyond CMYK to reproduce colors usually outside of the CMYK color range (or gamut). This session will consist of three presentations covering an overview of ECG technology, implementation in prepress and the pressroom, and the challenges with (and solutions for) how to best optimize the planning and layout of print forms to enable print service providers to fully maximize the benefits from this breakthrough technology.

Panelists for this session include:
• Andreas Kraushaar, head of the media prepress department, FOGRA
• Marek Skrzynski, VP Technology & Innovation, CSW Inc.
• Nick Shore, Senior VP, Operations, Max Solutions
• Stephen Witkowski, VP, Operations, Max Solutions

TAGA Tech Talk attendees will receive access to 11 recorded TAGA Papers from this year’s conference covering advances in packaging, materials and print processes, workflow, printed electronics, and other areas.
