Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., a printing technology provider, announces its AccurioJet KM-1e LED UV inkjet press has been accredited by INGEDE, the International Association of the Deinking Industry, for the deinking of uncoated paper printed on the system, enabling the paper to go through the recycling process.
Deinking is the removal process of printing ink from recovered paper during recycling. Key process steps for deinking are the detachment of ink film from the paper, ink fragmentation into a suitable size range, and removal from the pulp slurry.
“This certification gives our customers confidence they can run the widest range of substrates in the industry while still being good stewards of the environment,” says Bill Troxil, Konica Minolta Business Solutions.
Hidetoshi Omo, head of competence KM-1 at Konica Business Solutions Europe, states, “We are extremely proud to have received the accreditation from INGEDE for the Konica Minolta AccurioJet KM-1e, which rewards a great deal of hard work and inspiration from our development teams, and underpins our commitment to sustainability.”
