Waterless printing technology, as one of the important technologies to replace the source of printing industry, is mainly suitable for publication printing, packaging printing and other plate printing, and has been widely used in the world. Taking a printing enterprise in Beijing as an example, the co-benefit evaluation of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and CO2 emission reduction after the introduction of waterless printing technology at the enterprise level was carried out, and the data were obtained through field monitoring and open literature to conduct empirical research. The results are as follows. (1) Compared with the baseline scenario, the implementation of waterless printing technology and the installation of terminal treatment facilities can both reduce VOCs emissions, but the implementation of waterless printing technology has better emission reduction effect, and the emission reduction rate is about 60%. (2) After the implementation of waterless printing technology, the CO2 emission is significantly reduced, but the installation of terminal treatment facilities will increase the CO2 emission. (3) The source substitution technology represented by waterless printing can realize the synergistic emission reduction of VOCs and CO2.

Key words: Waterless printing technology, Co-reduction, Printing industry, Evaluation
