Development and implementation of environmentally friendly GelJet print technology for use in a range of colour printers.

RICOH Printer for Green Project, brining awareness of green issues to businesses and individuals.

Summary:

GELJET technology is pioneering in its field, Ricoh’s GELJET Printers offer lower power consumption, at least 1/10th of the energy consumption of a laser printer. This also Translates into CO2 emissions, where typical laser printers can produce over 10 times that of GELJETS. Warm up time can also be a problem for printers, especially laser printers, which need heat to fuse the ink on the paper. GELJET printers use a cold process to spray ink onto the paper. The GELJET hardware is partially made from plant based plastic so it is also eco-friendly.

RICOH the photocopier and print technology giant wins Sustainability Award for their pioneering GELJET print technology and their marketing campaign ‘RICOH Printer For Green Project’. With this project RICOH will donate part of your money used to purchase the equipment to conserve forests and wildlife at 3 locations world-wide.
