Your Printer Choice Might Make Huge Impact On Global Warming


Last week, I had a chance to attend a presentation conducted by Epson. Before attending the event, I thought I know everything that one should know about printers and this live-demonstration changed my perception about them and how big of an impact a right printer can make on the mother Earth.

This presentation was based on a new proprietary printing technology called the PrecisionCore that is more cost-efficient and eco-friendly compared to the thermal and laser printing technology.

PrecisionCore is a technology that is used for Epson inkjet printers, it uses electric impulses to spray the ink on the paper. It works with both dye-based and pigment-based inks. Pigment-based inks are used in offices that make the printout anti-smudge and water-resistant, whereas, the dye-based inks are used for house-hold applications.

Unlike a thermal-based inkjet printer or a laser printer, Epson does not consider the printer head as a consumable and it is covered in the warranty.

Compared to a laser printer, the PrecisionCore technology-based printers are much affordable. It just costs 7 paise per print on dye-based tech and costs 12 paise per print on pigment-based prints. A document printed on a pigment-based printer can last up to 50 years if stored under the right conditions.

I also learned the fact that the toner particles from a laser printer are a major health hazard and it might lead to several health-related complications. On a lighter note, printers equipped with the PrecisionCore technology can also be used with edible ink that can be used to print on cakes and pastries.

Impact Of Printer On Global Warming

Laser printers are currently the most commonly used in office spaces for most of the printing related tasks. The company had two different printers in the demo area, a laser printer and an inkjet printer based on PrecisionCore technology.

The demonstration showcased that a laser printer not only uses heat to stick the color onto the paper, it also uses more power. Plus, it takes almost an hour to come back to the room temperature once the printing job is completed.

So, an inkjet printer in comparison with a laser printer uses less power, produces less heat, and is much more affordable. The company showcased these real-time demos using a thermal camera. And even after 45 minutes of the operation, the laser printer was hot to touch.

To bring this technology to the mainstream, Epson has stopped selling laser printers in the country and the brand also suggests that the trending is shifting towards the inkjet technology. When you are buying a printer next time, make sure that you get the eco-friendly one and let us help to curb this global warming one step at a time.
