To save and protect our friends trees we have been trying so hard and Epson, one of the biggest Japanese electronics companies in the world, doesn't back down, on the contrary, it has taken green to heart more than anyone else. The litmus test?
Epson PaperLab, the first machine in the world able to recycle paper directly in the office, in style 'zero-mile'. It seems like a great copier but the function is another: turning waste paper (otherwise destined for the trash) in white new sheets ready to be used. The system is capable of producing 14 on size A4 sheets per minute (proportionally about 6,720 sheets in a typical eight-hour working day) and it is also possible to change size, thickness and type of paper: from A3, to business cards, up to colorful and even fragrant sheets.
Because water is a precious resource, the process does not use solvents or other liquids but is almost completely 'dry'. Moreover, recycling on site guarantees a reduction in costs for companies (which produce themselves paper using paper already used) and assures the reduction of CO2 emissions related to transport. Epson PaperLab will be for sale in Japan in 2016 and later in other countries.
