Instituto Tecnológico de Óptica, Color e Imagen (AIDO), in collaboration with the Universidad de Alicante, is investigating the development of nanopigments based printing inks. This development aims to create special clays based inks and organic dyes ecological, removing heavy metals and pollutants from the waste ink today.

Besides the advantages discussed the application of offset printing to nanopigments incorporates bright colours and strong by providing a high resistance to radiation, temperature, oxygen, chemicals and greater resistance to deterioration from exposure to the elements, increasing durability.

This project has been named Nanoffsetinks and has IMPIVA financing and cofinancing from the European Regional Development Fund.
