UXBRIDGE - Xerox Document Supplies Europe today announced the launch of its Colotech Recycled paper which is specifically produced for the digital colour printing market.

The Colotech Recycled paper is specifically designed by the Xerox Paper Technology Centre in Welwyn Garden City in the UK and is the first recycled paper for colour applications in the Xerox portfolio. Colotech Recycled combines high quality colour printing with high sustainable standards. The product has a smooth surface which helps enable the sharpest of images. It also fully meets today's requirement from customers to print "green".

Consistent with Xerox's global sustainability commitment, the Colotech Recycled paper contains 80% PCW (Post Consumer Waste) and carries the international FSC environmental logo. Xerox papers carrying labels from the FSC (Sustainable Forestry Initiative) help consumers to find easily products that meet strict worldwide standards for sustainable forestry.

Colotech Recycled paper is available in sizes A4, A3 and SRA3 with weights ranging from 90 - 100 and 120gsm. Xerox expects users in the office and the graphic arts environments to use its new recycled paper for a range of applications, including brochures, annual reports, environmental statements, etc.

"Xerox has one of the largest ranges of recycled papers in the market making it easy for customers to select the product that best suits their needs. The Colotech Recycled paper offers our customers the highest quality paper for colour applications, as well as the assurance of the highest environmental standards" says Bob Horastead, managing director, Document Supplies Europe
