A revolutionary new 'dry ink' has been invented by researchers from the American Chemical Society (ACS) which is being hailed as a real step forward in improving the efficiency of ink cartridges.

According to the ACS, the new ink will produce high-quality, sharp colour images at a more economical rate. This will then lead to a cut in electricity by up to 30 per cent and reduces the amount of emissions produced.

Not only have the society released the printer ink but they have also released a video which aims to show the process they underwent.

ACS president Nancy B. Jackson, Ph.D, said: "The Prized Science videos strive to give people with no special scientific knowledge the chance to discover the chemistry behind the American Chemical Society's national awards and see how it improves and transforms our daily lives."

The new type of dry ink has the appearance of a powder but is said to be just as professional when it comes to printing as traditional inks.
