Every year in Europe 60% – 70% of empty toner and inkjet cartridges end up being incinerated or landfilled. Yet up to 85% could be reused. In 2015 the European Commission adopted an action plan to help accelerate Europe’s transition towards a circular economy, boost global competitiveness, promote sustainable economic growth and generate new jobs.
This conference explores the current market, the latest trends and issues, the reuse barriers and the EU’s plans to expand reuse and the circular economy in the office imaging sector. The new 2019 EU Commission and European Parliament are poised will see the launch of several EU policy initiatives to boost greener printing, and cartridges are at the heart of this.
