Pelikan branded ‘no waste’ toner cartridge designs have eliminated the waste toner generated in the normal life cycle of OEM original cartridges and Remanufactured cartridges. This is achieved by using new innovative technology within the cartridge, saving up to 15 per cent of the toner fill weight which is usually left in the cartridge at end of life, and usually ends up in land fill. That reduces the CO2 footprint, but Pelikan also reduces the amount of plastic used in the cartridge design and extends the yields up to 9 times that of the OEM original.
Pelikan Branded Bio Based cartridges reduce CO2 footprints by a minimum of 20 per cent and are TUV certified as Bio Based products using organic material content for toner powder and plastics.
Eco-Friendly Duo Brother Replacement products double the yield to reduce CO2 footprint by 50 per cent and have a patented reset counter lever mechanism to restart the counter for the second cycle that does not involve rotating the count gearing mechanism of the original that infringes the OEM patent.
When using OEM cartridges, the transfer systems from drum to paper is not a perfect technology. OEMs lose up to 15 per cent of the toner that does not transfer to the page and usually gets wiped off the OPC and diverted into a waste toner hopper designed in the cartridge housing. With Pelikan branded cartridges all the toner gets used and prints on the paper as needed without any waste. 100 per cent toner use means zero carbon toner powder waste, reducing overall CO2.
Pelikan said, “our efforts for the environment are long term and part of our culture through our group. Our social responsibility is understood, and our corporate responsibility is taken seriously. Recycling for reuse, and remanufacturing, are good. Making IP safe compatibles that can be remanufactured has less CO2footprint than Remanufactured products because it does not need collecting and transporting after the Virgin cycle, Pelikan branded Bio Based products can reduce dependence on fossil fuel derivatives by half and the new eco-friendly higher yield designed products reduce CO2 levels whilst making the cartridge more profitable. Collection of used cartridges continue throughout the world and our innovation continues, and don’t be fooled by the ‘single-use design’ rhetoric, Pelikan branded compatible cartridges have always been designed to be remanufactured using standard parts and supplies.”
