The hottest solution to the problem of consumables

Solve the problem of consumables recycling

the main components of printing consumables are mostly made of plastic. If the garbage is landfilled, the plastic will take 100 years to degrade. If it is not handled properly, toner will cause potential harm to "dynamic stability" from the surface of the words, and the residue of ink and colorant will pollute a lot of soil and groundwater. According to scientific research, a drop of ink can pollute 60 cubic meters of water, equivalent to the water consumption of ordinary people for nearly half a year

in order to solve this problem, in recent years, the government and enterprises have carried out a lot of publicity on consumables recycling and environmental protection and taken corresponding recycling measures. Take Epson as an example. Since December, 2001, the company has established genuine consumables recycling stations nationwide. Consumers only need to put the used genuine Epson consumables into the recycling box at the recycling point at a convenient time, and they will be transported to the designated place by a special transportation company for environmental protection treatment and resource regeneration. HP China also said that the company has cooperated with Beijing global village and the root and bud Office of Jane Goodall Research Association. There are three common classification methods to help consumers: improve the awareness of recycling printing consumables, and provide users in Beijing and Shanghai with free and convenient recycling of HP printing consumables. This project is called recycling dragon

then, has the efforts of original consumables manufacturers completely solved the recycling problem of waste consumables? Things are far from so simple

"win-win recycling" strategy drives the standardization of consumables recycling

it is believed that printer users, as ordinary consumers, have such experience: walking in the hot sales areas of it electronic products, such as Zhongguancun in Beijing, they will always be blocked by consumables recycling guerrillas holding "recycled ink cartridges, toner cartridges" cards, and buy the original waste ink cartridges in the hands of consumers at "high prices" ranging from a few yuan to dozens of yuan. In the face of such good things, consumers, especially users with a large number of waste consumables, are often tempted by their generous returns, which makes the guerrillas a "good thing". However, as everyone knows, while selling waste consumables, consumers also sold their own interests at the same time. Why do guerrillas pay such a high price to recycle waste consumables? Obviously, they are not from the perspective of environmental protection. The words of a waste consumables recycling business owner revealed the mystery: "These ink cartridges and toner cartridges seem to be 'recycled at a high price', but in fact the price is very low. After being recycled, as long as the circuit board and nozzle of the ink cartridge are in good condition, they are cleaned in some illegal factories, filled with inferior ink, pasted with fake trademarks, and equipped with fake packaging, they become a brand-new ink cartridge, which can flow into the market at the end of last year. The renovation cost is only a dozen yuan, and the 'brand-new' ink cartridge can obtain several times the profit Run. " In other words, the behavior of consumers selling waste consumables to guerrillas is equivalent to providing a "source of goods" for counterfeiters, and also increases the probability of buying fake and inferior consumables in the future. For consumers, the fake and inferior consumables produced in this way will damage not only their economic interests, but also their health. Unlike regular manufacturers that use green and environmentally friendly raw materials to produce consumables, fake consumables are produced with extremely low-cost raw materials under extremely simple conditions, and its harm to human health can be imagined

on the one hand is the free recycling of original manufacturers, on the other hand is the high price purchase of illegal vendors. For ordinary consumers, the temptation of the latter is obvious. In order to guide consumers to choose a proper way of recycling consumables and not give counterfeiters an opportunity, the original consumables manufacturers represented by Epson have also launched their own "killer mace". According to the needs of different users, Epson has carried out a series of incentive measures for the recycling of consumables. For example, Epson's excimer printer users can give the used toner cartridges and toner cartridges to Epson's door-to-door recyclers by dialing 800, and participate in Epson's "excellent ink points" activity in exchange for points, so as to obtain more discounts. It can be seen that this consumable recycling strategy is much more effective in guiding consumers to choose the correct way of consumable recycling than simple publicity, and will certainly guide the standardized development of the consumable recycling market

environmental recycling to build a conservation oriented society

ordinary consumers may not know that for original manufacturers such as HP and Epson, consumables recycling is only the first step of a journey of ten thousand miles. According to the relevant staff of Epson, all recycled consumables are transported to the entrusted treatment enterprise designated by Epson for environmental protection treatment. After a complete set of systematic recycling process, they are disassembled as a whole, and recycled according to different components such as plastics, precious metals, waste ink water, etc. the whole process is carried out in strict accordance with environmental protection requirements, avoiding secondary pollution, So that resources can be safely and reasonably regenerated. This industry-leading scientific recycling measure not only effectively prevents the problem of environmental pollution caused by randomly discarding waste consumables, but also effectively uses the renewable resources in waste consumables, realizes the reuse of resources, and promotes the process of building an energy-saving society. It is obvious that this consumables recycling process has virtually increased the company's operating costs, but Epson believes that as a behavior beneficial to the environment, the recycling of electronic consumables should be borne by every interested corporate citizen
