HP develops paper that “saves trees”

September 12, 2012

‘Colorlok’ paper devised to reduce strikethrough to encourage printing on both sides of the page.

The Hindu has reported on a new branded paper developed by HP, with claims that it will reduce the consumption of paper and decrease tree felling.

Noting that “one tonne of uncoated virgin (jargon for non-recycled) printing and office paper uses 24 trees” and that “one ream (500 sheets) uses six percent of a tree”, the Hindu states that the OEM’s ‘Colorlok’ paper reduces strikethrough – inks showing on the back of the paper – encourages double-sided printing, potentially reducing paper consumption by 50 percent.

JK Paper will be the sole manufacturer of the paper in Indi and was awarded the contract following conducting 127 different tests on the paper. Deputy General Manager V. K. Anil Kumar has claimed that the paper can also reduce e-waste by prolonging the lifecycle of printers by 40 to 60 percent, as fusers last longer due to Colorlok technology.
