Information @ a Glance


  • 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 naturally low in VOCs (volatile organic compounds, chemical compounds that evaporate and react to sunlight) and its usage can reduce emissions causing air pollution.

  • Soy ink is available for newspapers, magazines, commercial printing, packaging, business forms and many other uses.


  • Today, one-third of Americaís nearly 10.000 newspaper printers use it. More than 90% of the nationís daily newspapers are printed with color soy ink. Most newspapers use soy ink for color printing because its price is comparable with that of conventional color ink and it has many advantages: its superior performance, its environmental friendliness and its vibrant colors.

  • Currently, production of the ANPA soy-based ink uses 5 to 10 million bushels of soybeans yearly.

  • Soy ink's US. market share has quadrupled from less than 5 percent to 22.5 percent today. US. soybean oil use in printing inks has increased from virtually nothing to 103 million pounds (46.4 million kilograms) annually.
