HP Invests In Green Ink Cartridge Production Processes
Hewlett-Packard (HP) has started research into how to make ink cartridge production more sustainable and viable in the future.
According to HP, during the recycling process of ink cartridges, the separation of plastics is the most significant stage.
Since HP started recycling products in 2005, it has produced over one billion ink cartridges up until July 2011.
Annuka Dickens, head of environmental management at HP, told The Times of India: "HP now manufactures 3.5 products every second. But we realise bigger does not always mean better."
HP recently released its smallest colour multifunction printer with its LaserJet Pro 100, which allows people to copy, scan and print documents all from one place.
The firm stated that the device is environmentally friendly and can deliver energy savings for customers through its HP Auto-Off and Instant-on Technology.
On top of this, computer users can connect to the printer wirelessly or via Ethernet.
