(MENAFN Press) Following its worldwide roll out, Techserve, part of the Al-Futtaim group's electronics division, has introduced to the UAE the world's first eco-friendly Multifunction Printer (MFP) system that can erase images and text on prints. By incorporating a unique toner, the device is capable of erasing images and text output allowing for the reuse of paper

The e-STUDIO 306LP MFP combines with the e-STUDIO RD30 for removing the toner colour from the printed documents. The instantly erasable toner is a special toner whose colour is removed by passing the paper through the RD30 at high temperature.

If the same paper is used five times, this constitutes some 55% reduction in the system's total CO‚‚ emissions. Eco“friendly MFP system has verified the calculation method used to determine the amount of reduction in CO‚‚ (Life Cycle Assessment: LCA) by British Standards Institution (BSI) Group Japan. LCA is a method of assessing the environmental impact of a product or service from the time of production until disposal. BSI is a global organization that equips businesses with the necessary solutions to turn standards of best practice into habits of excellence.

The key features of the RD30 are its ability to sort paper into reusable and un-reusable sheets at the same time as removing the toner colour, and to digitize the documents prior to erasing. Normally, documents that have been used, for example, at a meeting, are either filed away or scrapped, but with this system, there is no filing or destroying of paper documents, and the contents of the documents can be converted into data and saved for future use.

The e-STUDIO 306LP/RD30 re-usable paper solution opens a window to a new work style in the office environment by encouraging users to re-use paper through the new system.

"We are extremely pleased to introduce Toshiba's world-first eco-friendly Multifunction printer system to our customers in the UAE. The ability to reuse paper marks a major step forward to producing eco-friendly printing options and enables organizations to set an example for their employees while taking the lead in being more eco-friendly," said Rajagopal S, General Manager, Techserve.
