Sustainability in Action

What outcomes are achieved by recycling print cartridges with CtL?

The products recovered from the Close the Loop process include plastics, metals (ferrous and non-ferrous), ink and toner. Metals are sent for smelting in Australia. Plastics are separated by plastic type where possible and refined. The refined product is then sold as a raw material for manufacturing in Australia and elsewhere in the world. Specific inkjet plastics along with inkjet ink is used to manufacture the Enviroliner pens. Ink is also refined and mixed and sold as a printing ink for flexographic applications. Some of the recovered plastic goes into making eWood.
