Environmental
Story

Memjet Waterfall Printhead Technology® isn't just the fastest around, it's also the most environmentally-friendly, which translates into significant operational efficiencies.

Memjet inks are less noxious, use less energy.

Memjet Formula Inks are classified as "aqueous," or water-based. That's an important distinction because it means they emit neither the nano-particles found in laser-printer toners, nor the noxious odors emitted by solvent- or UV-cured inks. The result is a safer work environment for printing operators and employees.

But the benefits of Memjet Formula Inks don't end there. Our inks also present significant energy savings because there is no need to heat toner typically found in laser printers. And since Memjet Formula Inks are not energy-curable, they don't need to be dried with "vampire lamps" to "cure" inks. In one quick, efficient pass, printed materials emerge ready to ship.

Memjet product energy consumption is much lower compared to HP

Waterfall Printhead Technology® also delivers operational efficiencies.

Memjet printheads can be arranged for virtually any printing application–documents, labels, wide-format. That means short-run and long-run print jobs can deliver variable data on-demand anytime, virtually anywhere. Instead of printing, shipping and storing printed inventories, companies can now print materials at their own facilities. This results in significant reduction of delivery, transportation and logistics costs, and leaves a smaller carbon footprint.

We comply with all global environmental standards. Always have. Always will.

Memjet is also an industry leader in adoption and implementation of Global Harmonization System (GHS) and Classification and Labeling Process/Protocol (CLP) requirements. Our revolutionary printhead requires no special disposal instructions or permits, and typically contains only 0.5 milliliters of ink when removed from a printer. In fact, our printhead components easily unclip from the printhead, so they're very easy to recover for recycling.

We also comply with all global standards regarding substances that could be harmful to the environment. Memjet adheres to Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) and Registration, Evaluation, Authorization (REACH) standards and can provide partners Joint Article Management Promotion – Article Identification Sheet (JAMP-AIS) documentation that enables them to calculate quantities of the various substances in a completed commercial Memjet-powered printer. Memjet does not use any halogens or compounds containing halogens (such as chlorine or bromine). On top of this, many of the Memjet printhead component subassemblies are recyclable and carry appropriate ISO 11469 identification, as well as packaging industry recycling symbols where applicable. Recyclable Memjet printhead components subassembly examples are: the printhead's plastic protective packaging, black chassis, shrouds, and paper guard.
