“Xerox is committed to protecting the environment,” said Darren Cassidy, Director and General Manager, Office Group, Xerox UK and VP Large Accounts, Office Group, Xerox Europe. “The design and minimal packaging used in our solid ink products mean no cartridges to dispose of and far less packaging to add to landfills. With the addition of the GreenPrint software to our solid ink printers and MFPs, customers now have another tool to reduce the environmental impact of their printing – and importantly, it won’t cost them anything.”
Xerox solid ink printers greatly reduce the waste associated with disposable toner and ink consumables by using solid sticks of non-toxic ink instead of toner or inkjet cartridges. Solid ink prints on a wide range of media and produces 90% less waste than a typical colour laser printer. And since Xerox consumables take up less space – solid ink systems require 10 times less storage space over three years of printing than typical colour lasers – customers can also be assured of reduced transport costs and lower CO2 emissions as a result.
The GreenPrint software eliminates waste before printing – saving paper and ink – and, consequently, delivering environmental benefits. The software analyses each page of every document sent to the printer and looks for typical waste characteristics (for example pages with just a URL, banner ad or logo) and then highlights and removes them. GreenPrint also allows users to remove pages and images or text from a page with a single click before printing, resulting in significant savings in ink or toner. GreenPrint saves the average user over $90 (45.50) and 1,400 wasted pages per year and allows enterprises to quantify the ecological benefits and cost saving benefits that result from using the software.
“We see bundling our software with Xerox solid ink printers as an ideal fit in a lot of ways,” said GreenPrint CEO Hayden Hamilton. “The solid ink printers have been designed to eliminate the waste associated with toner cartridges, bringing annual waste related to packaging and cartridges down from 76kg to 4.6kg per 72,000 prints, or 20kg to 1.2kg per printer per annum. With the inclusion of GreenPrint, solid ink users can eliminate unnecessary printed pages, reducing the waste and cost associated with printing by an additional 15-20% across the board.”
The bundle is being offered worldwide with every new Xerox Phaser 8560 and Phaser 8860 solid ink colour printer and MFP and any purchased since November last year. The software is available in 14 languages. To access the GreenPrint download, customers will need to enter their Xerox serial number at www.printgreener.com/xerox
