Reducing CO2 emissions and environmental load through energy and resource efficiency

Low power consumption and the minimization of waste with high-capacity ink packs not only reduce costs, but also contribute to reducing environmental load. When evaluating the impact of materials and manufacturing, and use, the CO2 emissions of Epson's business inkjets are considerably lower than those of lasers, demonstrating their environmental performance.

Comparison of global warming impacts (C02 equivalent)

The 75,000-page1 yield of the color ink pack of the WF-R8590 series was used as the basis for comparing consumables2 and power consumption for a popular laser printer available today.
Figures calculated under Epson's test conditions. Epson uses a life cycle assessment to calculate the total global warming impacts of consumables (material, material processing) and power consumption as C02 emissions.
For the laser printer, data was collected from consumable environmental impacts, the material of components and material manufacturing method. This estimation and calculation is based on Epson original criteria and calculation method.

  • Quoted yields are extrapolated based on Epson original methodology from the print simulation of test patterns provided in ISO/IEC 24712. Quoted yields are not based on ISO/IEC24711. Quoted yields may vary depending on the images that you are printing, the paper type that you are using, the frequency of your prints and environmental conditions such as temperature.
  • WF-R8590 series : Ink pack, Maintenance Box

  • 3. Power consumption in case of printing 75,000 pages is calculated from TEC value. WF-R8590DTWF was measured in the condition of printing 288 pages per day based on TEC standard. TEC value for the laser printer compared has been registered as of May 2015. Power consumption and co, emissions will vary depending on customer printer use.
