Ink cartridges provider Epson is playing a key role in preserving a selection of prehistoric paintings in Africa.

The company is working on a world heritage project in Tanzania, where it is aiming to preserve hundreds of rock paintings, reports ITWeb.

Printed reproductions of the paintings are helping to create jobs and develop a sense of pride in the local community.

Shaun Robinson, account manager at Epson’s South Africa office, told the news provider: "The rock art preservation initiative has given us the opportunity to preserve our planet’s heritage, while at the same time establishing potential future tourist attractions and revenue-earners for the local population."

Mr Robinson added that the company is "giving back" to the communities that have offered it support.

In recent weeks, Manila Standard Today reported that Epson has launched its first ever inkjet-based dry photo lab.

Entitled the SureLab SL-D3000, the system offers low costs, improved flexibility and better maintenance.
