When using OEM cartridges, the transfer systems from drum to paper is not a perfect technology. OEMs lose up to 15% of the toner that does not transfer to the page and usually gets wiped off the OPC and diverted into a waste toner hopper designed in the cartridge housing. The latest innovation and development is the No Waste - full toner use system. This means that All the toner gets used and prints on the paper as needed without any waste. Our proprietary design is patented and unique and a system, when used, that is a win-win for everyone concerned. 100% toner use means zero carbon toner powder waste, reducing overall CO2. Innovation is key. Pelikan branded cartridges meet OEM stated yields but uses less toner to do so – great, CO2 reduction and better for the planet.
Our efforts for the environment are long term and part of our culture through our group. Our social responsibility is understood, and our corporate responsibility is taken seriously. Recycling for reuse, remanufacturing, is good. Making IP safe compatibles that can be remanufactured has less CO2 footprint than Remanufactured products because it does not need collecting and transporting after the Virgin cycle, Pelikan branded Bio Based products can reduce dependence on fossil fuel derivatives by half and the NEW eco - friendly higher yield designed products reduce CO2 levels whilst making the cartridge more profitable. Collection of used cartridges continue throughout the world and our innovation continues, and don’t be fooled by the ‘single use design’ rhetoric, Pelikan branded compatible cartridges have always been designed to be remanufactured using standard parts and supplies.
