Toshiba TEC announced that it has received two notable awards for its unique eco-friendly e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 that enables customers to reuse office paper for multiple printing.
Firstly, the Toshiba e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 has been declared a gold winner in the category ‘Most Innovative Product of the Year’ by Best in
Biz 2014 International. Best in Biz 2014 is an independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts.
Secondly, the e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 has been voted ABA100 winner for the Best Eco Product in The Australian Business Awards 2014 by demonstrating a level of leadership setting it apart from its competitors.
The e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 is an innovative multi-function device consisting of a printer with erasable toner and an erasing device. Users can print and copy as they would on a typical MFP. However, when used paper is fed into the eraser unit it heats the toner and de-colourises the print and provides a blank sheet to use again. Just as importantly, each piece of paper can be reused over and over again with a conservative average reuse of 5 times. At the same time, a scan function allows documents to be scanned and archived to a designated file location, before the print is erased.
By turning paper into a reusable resource, Toshiba’s e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 drastically reduces the environmental impacts associated with printing and copying, offering up to 50% reductions in CO2 emission and 80% reductions in paper use.
Since the e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 was released, it has helped various companies to meet the increasing demand to be sustainable and limited their use of resources. Customers – spanning from logistics and manufacturing companies, to government offices – noticed considerable paper reductions when using the system to print temporary, internal documents. In the case of one Australian logistics user, a drastic reduction as high as 90% was reported. Toshiba’s customers have experienced that the e-STUDIO306LP/RD30, like no other system, contributes to aligning their business goals with environmental responsibilities.
These 2014 awards recognise Toshiba’s e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 across the globe for its innovative use of technology to not only drive great value for customers but also to make a green impact on their business. In 2013, the e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 achieved several awards such as the “METI* Minister’s Awards of Green IT Award 2013”and “Cho (Super) MONODZUKURI Innovative Parts and Components Awards 2013” for its ground-breaking solution.
According to Jeremy Spencer, Marketing Director of Toshiba TEC, ‘We are very proud of the awards we have received so far for this system and we’re sure it will go on to achieve even more. We have a responsibility to help our customers reduce their carbon footprint and leading innovations such as the e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 ensure that we do just that’.
