Lexmark named demo partner for two new EU-funded projects

Lexmark has been selected as a partner in two new EU-funded projects to build circular economy solutions for the global marketplace.

As the exclusive imaging equipment provider, Lexmark will contribute to both the Circular Economy Resource Information System (CE-RISE) project and DiCiM, a project using integrated digital solutions to improve Circular Manufacturing Systems. Both projects are part of Horizon Europe, the EU Research and Innovation framework programme running from 2021- 2027.

The CE-RISE project involves 27 partners from 12 countries and will run for a period of four years. It aims to lead research into sustainable models and take them one step further by maximising the use of secondary raw materials (SRMs) and utilising IoT and AI approaches. Building on the success of the C-SERVEES project, which ended last year, Lexmark will bring its sustainability expertise to build a best practice on circular models for the electronics industry.

The DiCiM project, which includes 12 consortium partners from 9 countries will run for the same four-year period. DiCim stands for ‘Digitalised Value Management for unlocking the potential of the Circular Manufacturing Systems with integrated digital solutions and is dedicated to utilising digital tools to accelerate the circular economy, business models.

As the only print manufacturer, Lexmark will assist the DiCiM project with IoT monitoring and identifying the key parameters in real-time. This will include implementing an open-access digital platform and demonstrating the capability of the printers for enabling tracking, tracing, and condition monitoring.

Maxime Furkel, Head of Government Affairs, Lexmark EMEA said, “in a world of finite resources, the circular economy will be vital in keeping businesses functioning. We are delighted to be sharing our expertise with both the CE-RISE and DiCiM projects. After completing our work with C-SERVEES, aimed at identifying new business models and creating local jobs, we are keen to build upon our findings and continue our research into boosting cartridge and printer remanufacturing solutions while optimising the reuse of secondary raw materials (SRMs). Utilising our IoT expertise for the projects will be key to both continuing the critical work of developing circular economy solutions for the business world and will also help Lexmark further improve our own offering and approach as we build towards a sustainable future.”
