Epson Ink Cartridge Packaging Made of 100% Recycled Paperboard

Epson Printer Cartridges Epson America, Inc., a leading provider of superior performing desktop printing solutions, announced that it will save thousands of trees annually, decrease air pollution and eliminate nearly one million pounds of solid waste per year in its recent transition to 100 percent recycled paperboard ink cartridge boxes now available where Epson inks are sold in the U.S. and Canada.

“Epson is committed to environmental conservation, from our product recycling and donation programs to our recognized global sustainability efforts,” said Ron Mateas, corporate manager, Environmental Programs, Epson America, Inc. “Epson strives to be a socially responsible corporate citizen, and for the third year in a row has been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index, an indicator for leading companies in economic, environmental and social criteria.”

All Epson packaging for consumer retail ink cartridges in the U.S. and Canada will consist of 100 percent recycled paperboard that can also be recycled when empty. By converting to recycled paperboard instead of virgin paperboard, less solid waste will be produced. In addition, by diverting fiber that would otherwise go into a landfill, the CO2 that would be emitted from decomposition of the material in a landfill is avoided, resulting in nearly one million pounds of solid waste eliminated per year. This move also eliminates the production of waste water equivalent to over 17 Olympic size swimming pools per year.

Recycled paperboard is made from 100 percent recovered paper that has been diverted from the solid waste stream and collected, separated, cleaned and recycled for use. Production of the recycled paperboard uses 50 percent less energy than converting virgin grades of paperboard, resulting in a significant reduction in greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere.

Xerox CiPress, World’s Only High-Speed Waterless Inkjet System

Xerox inkjet & laser toner cartridges The Xerox CiPress™ 500 Production Inkjet System, the world’s only high-speed waterless inkjet device, is making its North American debut at Graph Expo 2011. The supercharged system has earned high praise from a test customer, who calls it a “revolutionary, industry-changing solution.”

Printing 500 feet or 2,180 full-color pages per minute, the twin-engine device from Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) efficiently creates personalized marketing, transpromo and publishing pieces.

The inkjet system was tested by dmh Marketing Partners, a direct-mail company that creates more than 800 million pieces annually. By using the Xerox CiPress 500, dmh achieved consistent quality from page to page, spending less time on recalibrating the printing press and more time maximizing profitable revenue opportunities.

“We are constantly looking for cutting-edge technology to drive the manufacturing process and we believe the CiPress 500 is the best technology for high-volume production,” said Randy Seberg, chief technology officer, dmh Marketing Partners.

Waterless technology
Building from its patented solid ink technology, Xerox CiPress 500 enables printing on low-cost, plain paper without ink soaking through. This – together with self-monitoring and auto-correcting production controls – results in a workhorse device reliable enough to print tens of millions of pages every month. Xerox’s FreeFlow® Print Server enhances productivity by handling complex variable jobs without sacrificing print speed.

“The predictability and consistency is very high – the first sheet looks the same as sheet 500,000, which I could never say of an offset press,” added Seberg.

Drive more jobs, reduce costs with Xerox’s IntegratedPlus
Printers can be even more productive and efficient with Xerox’s IntegratedPlus – a new program that takes advantage of the open standards platform of Xerox FreeFlow Print Server and various industry-leading partner software solutions.

The first such offering – Xerox GMC IntegratedPlus – uses custom-designed software for the Xerox FreeFlow Print Server and CiPress 500, which delivers an extra boost of productivity. The results: consistent quality, two-way data communication, reduced labor costs and fewer opportunities for errors in a print run – all of which drive volume and revenue growth.

“As the demand for color pages continues to grow, inkjet devices such as the Xerox CiPress 500 become a strategic installation – positioning printers to capture more profitable jobs and produce them in the most productive, economical way,” said Eric Armour, president, Graphic Communications Business Group, Xerox Corporation.

Pricing and availability
The list price for Xerox CiPress 500 Production Inkjet System, including the Xerox FreeFlow Print Server, is $3.8 million for the base twin-engine duplex. Order taking begins immediately with installs slated for later this year.
