New technology developments in the printer ink sector are helping end users to reduce their impact on the environment, it has been claimed.

Councillor Tim Tierney, chair of the Beacon Hill-Cyrville council's information technology subcommittee, explained that new software is helping to increase print efficiency.

It can help public bodies track city reports, documentation presented at meetings and voting records, he told the Ottawa Citizen.

This means the amount of paper being printed by local authorities can be reduced, and they will spend less on ink cartridges as a result.

"What we're really trying to do is move city council into the next century. The days of pad and paper are going to hopefully be behind us," Mr Tierney stated.

He explained that the technology subcommittee would be running a pilot scheme to test the application of the new software.
