Mutoh America Inc. launches recycling program

In an effort to reduce its carbon footprint, Mutoh America Inc. is launching a new ink cartridge recycling program. Effective immediately, Mutoh printer owners are encouraged to send their empty ink cartridges to Mutoh America’s corporate office. Once received, Mutoh will then transport the ink cartridges to a local recycling company.

In addition to the recycling program, Mutoh has begun making 1,000 ml ink bags, which are more ecofriendly than a smaller, plastic cartridge. The bigger bag size is easier to recycle and produces less waste.

Mutoh America GM Brian Phipps says, “Unfortunately, most ink cartridges end up in the trash after they have been used. We, at Mutoh, are making an effort to reduce the amount of waste that these ink cartridges cause by taking a proactive step in the green direction.”

Mutoh recently announced its new MP Ink, which is composed of 60% bio-based materials and contains no hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) or heavy metals. The MP Ink produces a wide color gamut with increased adhesive and abrasion characteristics. Mutoh’s versatile ValueJet 1608HS-Hybrid runs the MP ink to create vivid, high-quality prints on both rigid and flexible substrates.
