  4. 4. Although we have made great improvements in our waste disposal habits over recentyears, there are still lots of ways we can do more.http://www.livinggreener.gov.au/guides/reduce-energy-bills Photocopier Environmentally Friendly Photocopiers and Office EquipmentEnvironmentally Friendly photocopiers and other office equipment are crucial to workplaceenergy-saving and waste-reduction. Many measures (procedural and technical) have beenimplemented by equipment manufacturers, dealers and distributors - even before thegovernments introduction of measures via legislation such as the WEEE directive.Additionally, all government departments and private enterprise organisations havebecome acutely aware in recent years of the need for the implementation of energy-efficiency measures - not least to address bottom-line profitability as well as the widerresponsibility to reduce climate change.Environmental Issues: RecyclingOffice equipment including photocopiers which previously ended up on landfill sites are nolonger able to do so under the WEEE directive. The WEEE (Waste Electrical and ElectronicEquipment) directive affects those involved in the manufacture, selling and distribution,recycling or treating of any electronic equipment. Included in the range of items affectedare household appliances, Information Technology and Telecommunications Equipment,audio visual and lighting equipment, electrical and electronic tools, surgical and hospitalequipment and automatic dispensers and of course, office equipment includingphotocopiers.The aim of the WEEE directive is to reduce the waste generated from electrical andelectronic equipment. The directive is also designed to ensure an improvement in theenvironmental procedures of all those involved in the life cycle of electrical and electronicproducts. Manufacturers, sellers and distributors of office equipment are responsible fortaking back and recycling electrical and electronic equipment. They are also required toachieve a series of rigorous recycling and recovery targets for different categories ofappliance. Responsibilities can be discharged in a number of ways, including financialcontributions.Environmental Issues: Energy Efficiency and Fossil Fuel ConsumptionApart from computers and associated print devices, photocopiers are without doubt themost common items of office equipment in use today. Due to the need to be used "ondemand", they can incur a significant environmental cost in terms of energy and paperusage and consequent greenhouse gas emissions.Energy Efficiency with Power ManagementPower management features are important for saving energy and an easy way to reduceair pollution. Energy efficient photocopiers provide a significant step towards reducing theenvironmental impact of office photocopiers. Such machines come provided with an“energy saving" mode so that when not in use they "power down". This feature alone canreduce the energy needed to support the machine in periods of low activity by up to 60%or even more.
  5. 5. Energy Efficiency with Technical InnovationA major energy-saving feature of the latest Canon photocopiers is the Canon "On-Demand" fusing system. The latest Canons use a thin fixing film, rather than a thickheating roller. They also use an efficient ceramic heating element, rather than a halogenheater. With these twin innovations, Canon achieves greatly improved energy efficiencyand lower heat requirements. Heat is applied only when paper is passed through the fixingmechanism and images are "fixed" via the fixing film. In addition to this, Canon’stechnology can allow the photocopier to make the transition between a cool energy-saving"sleep mode" to full operating temperatures in less than 10 seconds. This is a majoradvantage over conventional systems, which typically take more than one minute.A similarly innovative system is also available on the latest Konica Minolta bizbub series,including the bizhub C451. The induction heating fusing technology on the bizhub C451 isalso one which minimises energy consumption and maximises energy efficiency, by fusingat a lower temperature.For More Information on Energy Saving Office EquipmentSuch technology is paving the way to increased energy efficiency - especially whencoupled with an increase in the availability of "duplex" (paper-saving double-sided copyingand printing) as standard, and the adoption of office disciplines in the curtailing ofunnecessary paper creation via electronic Document Management Systems designed tooperate with digital photocopiers.http://www.officemagic.co.uk/articles/environmentally-friendly-energy-efficient-copiers.phpRequest a Quotehttp://www.konicaminolta.com.au/products/168/Office-Colour.aspxhttp://www.fujixerox.com.au/products/copiersCanonhttp://www.ecocopier.co.za/ecocopiersToshibas Eco-Friendly Office Copier Prints Erasable DocumentsA new copy machine by Toshiba hopes to be the next big thing for paper-conscious offices. It printsdocuments that can be erased instantly by heating the pages, and the paper can be used up to fivetimes before needing to be recycled. The toner is heat-sensitive, and loses colour when warmed up.But what happens if you leave your important documents in the hot car? According to CrunchGear,
  6. 6. the printer with its erasable paper can result in a "60% cut in carbon dioxide emissions, whencompared with using four sheets of paper. The copier can make 20 to 30 copies a minute and willcost about 20-30% more than conventional copiers with a similar performance, according to areport in The Nikkei (Japans biggest business daily)." The company hopes to commercialise thecopy machines sometime during the next fiscal year.It reminds us a little of a giant version of the PrePeat.The idea is very intriguing -- at least at first. After all, isnt it perfect that an office could reuse paperup to five times? While it sounds like a great way to curb the consumption of paper by offices, thereare a few issues that shake the "green" label for the machine. For instance, at what rate will paperget heated and reused, rather than saved (since the purpose of a copy machine is to have hard copiesof a document on hand), and does the energy that goes into heating the paper eat into any carbonsavings by minimising paper use? And what chemicals are used in heat-sensitive ink -- it might befar less green than using soy-based inks.We arent convinced that this is necessarily a green solution all around, and it underscores the factthat the greenest thing to do with copiers is just not use them. Avoiding printing in the first place ismore practical than investing in this new machine.http://www.treehugger.com/clean-technology/toshibas-eco-friendly-office-copier-prints-erasable-documents.htmlBig Steps with a smaller FootprintToshiba proudly introduces its greenest MFD everToshiba’s commitment to Corporate SocialResponsibility encourages major efforts toreduce the impact of our activities on theenvironment. Promoting good environmentalmanagement practices across all of ourproducts and business processes, the new e-STUDIO255/305/355/455 MFDs can boast thefollowing environmentally friendlyenhancements.The new e-STUDIO255/305/355/455 Multi-Function Device (MFD) efficiently outputscrisp monochrome images at speeds of 25ppm to 45 ppm. Scanning in colour itempowers use of digital document storageand retrieval for considerate paper usage andimproved work flow. Together with thefollowing innovations, we can all comfortablycontribute to environmental improvementactivities.ENERGY SAVINGUtilising Toshiba’s latest SOC (System on Chip) technology feature “Super Sleep Mode” theMFD consumes only 1W of power whilst in standby, in this mode it will be automaticallywoken for FAX and LAN activities.WASTE TONER RECYCLING SYSTEM100% of all waste toner is used for imaging resulting in a system that conservesresources, reduces cost and is kinder to the environment.PAPER/TONER SAVINGHold Print – this feature holds jobs at the MFD ready to output at the user’s convenience
  7. 7. eliminating loss and wastage of documents.Omit Blank Page - removes blank sheets from documents saving on unnecessary wastedpaper. Auto Duplex – this mode can be set as default cutting paper usage by 50%.N in 1 – documents can be thumb nailed for archiving (up to 32 pages) onto a singlesheet with substantial savings in paper and toner usage.Proof Print – eliminates wasted output by allowing the user to preview just onecompleted set at the MFD before committing to the rest of the job.Outside Erase – eliminates black background when copying or scanning books or other3D objects, the resultant images are not only cleaner but result in a reduction of tonerusage.Toner Save Mode – lets users print their documents in a legible output whilst savingtoner, perfect for drafts.LONG LIFE CONSUMABLESConsumables are designed to last longer, reducing the frequency of periodic maintenance.COMPLIANCE – DESIGN TO DISPOSALUsing the “concept to grave” design model, the e-STUDIO 255/305 and 355/455 aredesigned to fully comply with the world’s most stringent standards such as Energy StarTier2, Blue Angel Mark and R Ohs requirements of the European Union.HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES REDUCTIONProducts are lead free, Vinyl chloride-free, and Halogen-free.LIGHTER/MORE COMPACTthe new lighter and more compact design means more efficient shipping and as a directresult a reduction of CO² emissions. Compared to predecessor, size has been reduced byup to 33%, weight by up to 31% and the number of parts by up to 30%.RECYCLED MATERIALthese new MFDs utilise packaging manufactured from recycled materials which can bereturned for further recycling. In fact, over 14% of each new MFD is manufactured fromrecycled materials and the whole device is 100% totally recyclable.SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENTToshiba contributes to sustainable development in two ways: by supportingenvironmentally friendly values and by reducing the environmental impact of its productsand business practices. Toshiba strives to be eco-friendly in all activities includingprocurement of raw materials and components, product design, production, anddistribution. In line with this policy, Toshiba’s environmentally friendly MFDs featurerecycled materials and are highly efficient with energy and other resources.http://www.eid.toshiba.com.au/n_enviro_feature1.aspPhotocopying is comparatively more Eco friendly then printing, the reason being it involvedless consumption of ink. But a lot it depends on need and requirement of the user. If there isan option to use either one of them then in that case photocopying is best one to go for.http://ph.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100628233437AANzpdcSuccess StoriesNASAs Environmental Approach to CopiersNASAs unique "cost-per-copy" agency-wide contract, which means the agency purchasescopy services rather than machines, allowed the inclusion of several environmental
  8. 8. features important to NASA, including recycled paper and energy-efficiency. As a result,the agency estimates it will save approximately $4.5 million during the 5-year span of thecontract. In a cost-per-copy contract environment, the contractor provides convenientcopiers, all supplies including toner (which previously was a separate, high-cost item forall NASA sites), preventive maintenance, repairs and repair parts, training, moves, andassociated labour costs. These convenience copiers were viewed as an easy item toconsolidate into one agency wide contract that could yield considerable savings.Consolidating NASAs copier needs into one contract significantly reduced administrativecosts associated with contracts being competed, awarded, administered, and closed out.http://www.epa.gov/epp/pubs/copiers.htmBelow is a link to a site with an eco Calculator:http://www.biz.konicaminolta.com/environment/eco_calculator/index.html?rellink=topI could not find any photocopiers with the energy star rating at http://www.energyrating.gov.au/I rang EPA Victoria on 1300 372 842 and I asked them and all they could think of was theenergy rating website. PrinterGreener PrintingEnvironmentEco copiers can look at your current impact on the environment and provide practicalsolutions to help you be more Eco friendly. This doesn’t need to cost the Earth, as we canlook to do this without increasing your current monthly costs. All the products we supplyare specially selected to be the most environmentally (Eco) friendly in its sector.
  9. 9. • Each year some 500 million empty or used cartridges end up going to landfill. • A cartridge in landfill will take over 1000 years to biodegrade. • To manufacture an original toner cartridge will have taken some 3.5 litres of oil.The downsides of printing and modern technology when you read the headline facts arefrightening. The “paperless” office where we all read electronic documents and do notprint has never materialised and is never likely to. Most users still prefer to read printeddocuments than electronic.Given that we all print and all use toner and ink jet cartridges, the least we can do is todispose of them in the most environmentally friendly way possible.Here are some suggestions to help your office make an immediate impact: 1. Cut paper use. Print on both sides of the page "duplexing." Print multiple images per page and print only the quantity you need at the time you need it. Saving paper also saves energy: the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that it takes 10 times more energy to manufacture a piece of paper than to create another print or copy. 2. Reach for the right paper, and recycle the paper you use. Use environmentally preferable paper - like High Yield Business Paper that is produced using half of the number of trees of conventional paper. Print on paper certified to sustainable forestry standards from global organisations such as the Forest Stewardship Council and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification, or use paper with recycled content. Install bins in several office locations to make it easy to collect paper for recycling or for reuse as notepaper. 3. Reach for the ENERGY STAR®. Upgrade old products with new, more efficient systems and the savings add up. For example some new machines can use about 30 percent less than a comparable multifunction system of two years ago. 4. Replace copiers or printers with products that do-it-all. An office copier, four laser printers and a fax machine can consume 1400 kWh of energy each year. But if one multifunction system can handle your document needs, it uses only 700 kWh annually. Eco Copiers Sustainability Calculator can help pinpoint opportunities to reduce the overall environmental footprint of your office equipment. 5. Dont throw away empty toner cartridges. Send them back to us for reuse and recycling.
  10. 10. 6. Seek office equipment designed for re-manufacturing or recycling. Eco Copiers devices are designed with recycling and reuse in mind. Recycling and re- manufacturing programs have diverted more than 2 billion pounds of waste from landfills since 1991. 7. Use software to simplify the way you use documents. Cut back the time and energy spent on manual paper-based processes with work flow management systems and collaboration tools. For paper-intensive processes like legal discovery or mortgage loan document management, Docushare combined with scan-enabled multifunction devices can help reduce errors and improve version control – and ultimately eliminate the costs of producing, storing and shipping paper documents.GreenEco Copiers is now collecting empty cartridges in the UK. Eco Copiers Ltd realises that ithas to lead by example.Good ethicsNot to send any cartridges or mobile phones to landfill, having a positive impact on theenvironment.We can all make a difference to future generations - Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.WEEEEnvironmentally Friendly photocopiers and other office equipment are crucial to workplaceenergy-saving and waste-reduction.

The WEEE (Waste Electrical and ElectronicEquipment) directive affects those involved in the manufacture, selling and distribution,recycling or treating of any electronic equipment. Affected by the directive are householdappliances, information technology equipment of all kinds , telephone/telecommunicationsequipment, audio visual gear, lighting equipment, electrical and electronic tools, hospitaland medical devices and automatic dispensers and of course, office equipment includingphotocopiers.
  11. 11. The aim of the WEEE directive is to reduce the waste generated from electrical andelectronic equipment. The directive is also designed to ensure an improvement in theenvironmental procedures and processes of all those involved in the life cycle of electricaland electronic products. Manufacturers, sellers and distributors of office equipment areresponsible for taking back and recycling electrical and electronic equipment.

Details on their papermanagement are coming but the power saving system they use alone makes it a fantasticoption in reducing the impact on the environment.Looks like a truly green printer is here.http://www.ecoprinters.com.au/pos-printers/new-eco-printer-released-by-star-micronics/Green retailing, Greentailing and Eco PrintingIts coming sooner than you think – environmentally friendly retailers, eco-friendlyretailing, and green retailing - under whatever label, it will mean substantially more thansimply choosing paper bags, nevertheless the perceived expense seems to possibly beholding a number of retailers back.On the other hand “going green” will probably not end up being as time-consuming oreven as costly as everyone believes. Merchants that believe heading eco-friendly will besimply one more fad or perhaps advertising attention-grabber ought to reconsider theirposition.When consumers develop an increasing consciousness regarding a retailer’s entire impactregarding the environment, these same retailers might be prudent to ensure that theycompare favourably to any yardsticks that are instituted by green watchdogs. The realityis that green retailing (or simply ‘green-tailing’) is definitely here to stay.With the ongoing perils and concerns associated with global warming, in addition toescalating concern regarding the impact retail businesses generate regarding the naturalworld, the realities of green-tailing and being measured as eco-friendly will start to hithome.Retailers who take note now and begin the processes required to become eco-friendly nowhave an advantage over those that start late. There will be a marketing advantage forsure, as well as the financial advantage of being able to spread any costs of going greenover a longer period rather than being hit with large costs of conversion all at once.Eco Printers are one such area where the cost of conversion is minimal yet the savings interms of printer power consumption and paper usage can be quite dramatic.http://www.ecoprinters.com.au/category/green-retailing/
  13. 13. Wave Energy: A new energy to power Australian homes in 2017 Power Buoy®; Credit: © Ocean Power Technologies “This looks like a good idea Sarah, I wonder if the energy prices will be cheaper and will it have any effect on the fish, or other marine life and how will this affect our ecosystem?”As the Curiosity rover lands on Mars, the conquest of Renewable Marine Energy followsthe same process: in small measured steps. This important 19 MW project is the next stepin the on-going relationship between American wave power technology designer OceanPower Technologies and Lockheed Martin, one of the worlds space specialists.With the most advanced technology in the country best renowned for waves in the world,the wave energy farm could supply close to 100 MW in the long term.This team will be responsible of the first wave energy farm in Australia. Installed along thecoast of Victoria (Portland), 362 km south West of Melbourne, this 19 MW farm willproduce 75000 MWh/year (with a reproducibility factor of 50%) and supply electricity to14,000 Australian homes. This project will reduce levels of CO2 by 37,000 tons/year andallow Australia to save $851,000 AUD/year of carbon taxes (based on $23 AUD/ton ofCO2). The work is scheduled to start in 2013 and will be completed in 2017.For the last 15 years, OPT has been the pioneer in conception, prototype creation and theconnection of these systems to the electric grid. The American company, founded byGeorge W. Taylor (Australian) and Dr Joseph R. Burn, work with the wave energyconverter called "Power Buoy". Fixed on the sea bed, the technology follows the back andforth wave movement to harness and convert mechanical energy to electricity. Thesesystems are certified by "Lloyds Register" meaning they can function in big waves thatmeasure up to 28 meters (80-90 feet). However, even with this safety margin, the oceancontinues to surprise us. There are two models with a life span of 25 years: "Power buoy150kW" and "Power buoy 500kW".
  14. 14. In 2004, the US Navy was in search of a new autonomous system to generate electricity.From this announcement the relationship between OPT and Lockheed Martin was born.The first prototype was installed along the coast of New Jersey in 2005. The programended successfully in 2008 leading to the development and installation of a more powerfulsystem: 40 kW connected to a grid in Hawaii, followed by a 150 kW system in Scotlandand currently, a 500 kW buoy in development. Lockheed Martin contributes its specialistknowledge in the design, production, integration systems, and project management of thePower Buoy technology. Lockheed Martin also represents financial security for investorsand boosts funding research for the Australian project. OPT shares increased by 72 centsafter the news of this partnership.The Australian government contributed $67 million AUD of the $225 million AUD budgetfor this project and will participate through local industry players to the farms production,roll-out and maintenance. For its operation in territorial Australian seas, Australiancompany Victoria Wave Partner Pty Ltd (currently held by OPT) will own, manage, and beresponsible for its development. Currently, its mission is to evaluate potential funding aswell as develop important partnerships with local industry and public services regardingelectricity repurchasing and sales. Eventually, energy will be sold to electricity supplierswhich power commercial and residential buildings. The economic aspect of this energy isstill to be researched before we know its impact on costs. An article written by GillesParkinston states that wave energy could remain under 100$/Mwh by 2020.New American high-technology on Australian soil will bring attention from the local playerswho also strive to be leaders in the field. The government continues to promoting thenations intellectual property by financially participating in the development of smallerprojects and prototypes like the 2MW Carnegie project in Western Australia and variousother projects by Ocean Linx and BioPower System etc... The funding for these, however,remains modest and proportional to their profitability. As Australia is looking to establishits renewable energy industry within an already competitive international context, theAustralian government still chooses a significant investment in an American technologythat is more advanced.http://www.earthtimes.org/energy/wave-energy-a-energy-power-australian-homes-2017/2168/ Why Go Green?The Environmental Printing Company firmly believes that you, the planet, and yourbusiness can benefit from printing green.Here are just some of the reasons why:You Help Save TreesThe average office worker uses 0.68 kilograms of paper per day, that’s 170 kilograms peryear!

If all imaging equipment sold met the new ENERGY STARrequirements, annual savings would grow to nearly 4 million metrics tons of greenhousegas emissions (CO2), equivalent to emissions from more than 700,000 cars.Environmental ProtectionBecause they use less energy, these products reduce air pollution and greenhousegases caused by burning fossil fuels.More InformationTo learn more about the ENERGY STAR® program and ways you can save energy andprotect the environment, visitwww.energystar.gov.Brother - Network-Ready Wireless Black-and-White All-In-One PrinterModel: M FC-8910DWSKU: 6003099$489.99
