Recycle And Save Environmental Presentation

  1. 1. “Challenges facing China's energy needs” China is expected to have 900 gigawatts of energy capacity by 2020, more than double what it had at the end of 2003. * Chinese energy supply creates 25% more emissions per energy unit than the US. ** By some estimates, only 1% of China’s 560 million city dwellers breathe air that would pass European Union safety standards. *** Sources: *Global Change, 2009 ** Irish Times, 2010 *** China Environmental News, 2007
  2. 2. “How can Recycle & Save help?” OEM Cartridge Facts Recycle & Save solution It takes about a gallon of oil to make a new laser A toner cartridge can be recycled up to 75 times cartridge* thus potentially saving gallons of oil * One toner cartridge thrown away, takes up to 450 97% of the combined components to manufacture years to decompose ** the cartridge can be recycled and reused * 74.53kg of raw materials are used to produce 100 4.65kg of raw materials are used to produce 100 black toner cartridges*** remanufactured black toner cartridges *** In one year, if the world’s discarded cartridges were Significant raw material savings are made by stacked end-to-end, they would circle the earth over remanufacturing a cartridge three times** Sources: *Stopwaste, 2009 ** Business Wire, 2009 ***Best Foot Forward
  3. 3. “Carbon Emission Challenge” “As became apparent at the failed Copenhagen climate summit, China is not only an economic powerhouse, its now the world’s largest polluter, emitting more carbon than the United States, from whom it assumed the mantle in 2007.” -Irish Times, 2010 “Even with the proposed environmental targets, China's output of Carbon Dioxide is expected to increase by about 90% if the economy grows by 8%” -The Guardian, U.K , 2009
  4. 4. How can Recycle & Save help? OEM Cartridge Facts Recycle & Save solution China consumes more than three times the world The remanufacturing process saves approx 2.5 kg of energy average to produce one dollar of GDP(4.7 times CO2 per cartridge compared to the production of a new the average for the U.S., 7.7 times that of Germany, 11.5 cartridge, thus reducing pollution * times that of Japan) * China’s carbon intensity per GDP is 20 per cent higher A remanufactured cartridge has 46% lower carbon than the US ** footprint than a corresponding new cartridge* For each pound of new material used in Each discarded empty laser printer cartridge adds remanufacturing, 5 to 9 pounds of virgin materials are approximately three pounds of waste to our landfills conserved *** *** Sources: *Global Change, 2009 **Green Leap Forward. 2008 ***Recycling appeal, 2009
  5. 5. “OEM vs. RS Carbon Footprint” Components Used Per Year Recycle & Save OEM Number Total Number Total Used Weight (kg) Used Weight (kg) Drums 708 63.0 1,995 160.2 Wiper Blades 116 9.8 1,995 172.3 Primary Charge Rollers 196 12.9 1,995 78.6 Mag Rollers 92 2.6 1,995 52.2 DR Blades 36 2.9 1,995 104.6 Other Components 0 0.0 n/a 888.9 Total 1,148.0 91.1 n/a 1,456.8 -Best Foot Forward, 2007
  6. 6. “A few facts” Stacking 105 laser toner cartridges end-to-end equals the height of the Statue of Liberty. Every year over 300 million cartridges are thrown away. In terms of weight, that is equivalent to over 30,500 African Elephants! More than 1.1 billion inkjet cartridges are used annually around the world - laid end-to- end this would be 129 times as long as the Great Wall of China In the next 7 years, if all of the laser and inkjet cartridges are saved from landfills, a bridge could be built from the Earth to the Moon! -Image Source, Inc
  7. 7. “Remanufactured cartridges helps:” Avoids wasting valuable resources Saves energy Reduces the carbon footprint Shocking fact: In 2002, China banned the import of printing cartridges waste because it was discovered that a lot of the 'supposedly recycled' cartridges imposed by these cartridge companies all ended up in the Guiyu town in China. -Imaging Spectrum, 2002
