Toshiba e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 Reduces Paper Consumption in Governmental Office
TOKYO --(Business Wire)--
Toshiba (News - Alert) TEC (TOKYO:6588), a global leader in printing, imaging solutions
and services, introduced the world's first eco-friendly MFP system to
the governmental offices - Shiga Prefectural Office, Japan.
The ground-breaking MFP system was consciously designed to be
environmentally friendly. It consists of the e-STUDIO306LP which prints
the document in an erasable blue toner, and the e-STUDIO RD30 which
erases the identifiable print from paper. At the same time, scan
function allows documents to be scanned and archived to a designated
file location, before the print is erased.
Since its launch, the e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 has been installed in several
organizations endeavoring to use precious resources sustainably.
Consequently it is contributing to not only reduce operation expenses,
but also reduce the CO2 emissions and water consumptions in
paper production. We are confident that the introduction of
e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 to governmental offices, who are striving towards
improving national environment, will be one of the most important
activities for them to achieve the green edge.
Shiga Prefecture is home to Japan's largest freshwater lake - Lake Biwa.
Lake Biwa is not only wholly classified as a reservoir, but it is also a
valuable resource for nearby regions throughout western Japan.
Shiga Prefectural Office extensively endorses environmental protection
according to its action plan. It leads the role of achieving a
low-carbon society, with the responsibilities relating to the protection
and enhancement of the environment while maintaining economic growth.
Furthermore Shiga Prefectural Office promotes the Regeneration of Lake
Biwa with further studies of impacts on Lake Biwa's eco systems.
As a green pioneer, Shiga Prefectural Office carried out series of
projects to implement Energy Conservation Facilities prefecture-wde to
realize several green goals. Reduction in office paper consumption is
one of them. Knowing the eco boosting concept of paper reusing MFP
system meeting their needs impeccably, Shiga Prefecture installed them
in both offices of Global Warming Issues Division and Environmental
Policy Division, under the Department of Lake Biwa and the Environment.
The e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 is used to print internal documents, such as
weekly meeting files or proposal drafts, and erase the prints when they
are no longer required. Within the first month after installation, 5%
reduction of paper usage was recognized, and when the usage of
e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 increases within Shiga Prefecture office, the ratio
of paper reduction may increase dramatically. Among 32 office workers,
the number of users of this paper reusing MFP system is gradually and
steadily increasing. Although the output of this system is still under
observation, Shiga Prefectural Office has shown an interest to study the
possibility to install more e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 across the office.
The e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 helps Shiga Prefectural Office in reducing
operation cost by reusing paper. It proves that there are many
opportunities in various industries for paper reusing MFP system to make
an economical green contribution.
