Greener and more sustainable products
With the introduction of Eco Solvent inks and UV-LED printing solutions, Mimaki entered the world of sustainability. With cleaner and more environmentally sound inks and lower (or avoided) VOC emission, these solutions reduce harmful toxics, CO2 footprint, energy consumption, and waste through tighter integration of our printers and RIP RasterLINK software.
Mimaki invests heavily in R&D to develop eco-friendly printing equipment, such as our Latex offering, SUV ink technology, OEKO-TEX certified textile inks and the adoption of UV-LED curing, even at high speeds. Waste reduction a big priority, from our factory down to the consumer.
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) directive
The European Union introduced the Directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) with the aim of reducing the amount of hazardous substances in landfills. Mimaki highly recommends end-users properly dispose of this material. We label electrical and electronic equipment with the “crossed out wheeled bin”™ symbol to alert consumers that these items should be properly disposed for effective recycling and reuse.
Recycling of machines and ink cartridges
End-users in the Netherlands can contact Mimaki Europe B.V. regarding disposal and return options. For all other countries, end-users should contact their local Mimaki dealer to obtain the required disposal information.
