Green Success Stories

EA-Eco Toner

EA-Eco is an ultra-low-melt toner designed for Xerox office and production printers. Its rounded shape and small particle size provide colourful, high-gloss images using 40% less toner per printed page than conventional toners, while its novel low-melt resin design reduces energy consumption in the printing process.

Solid Ink Technology

Xerox wax-based solid ink comes in a cartridge-free format, reducing landfill waste by 90% compared to laser printing. The ink itself contains 30% bio-renewable materials. 

Long Life Components

We led the re-design of the imaging drum coatings used in Xerox printers, which dramatically improved drum life, changing it from a consumable item to a life-of-machine component.
