Recycling cartridges

Pelikan Hardcopy feels a high responsibility to reduce waste and spare the earth’s natural resources. It is Pelikan’s company policy to reduce, reuse and recycle waste. When people want to do their bit for the planet, they choose Pelikan.

“Green” certifications

Pelikan is an ISO 14001 certified company, which requires that Pelikan systematically looks at all of its activities that have an environmental impact. Pelikan’s environmental awareness is also reflected in the Nordic Swan certificate for many of our remanufactured laser cartridges. In practice this means Pelikan uses no harmful substances in its inks, toners and colours, while reducing waste and the consumption of energy and raw materials.

HIGHEST POSSIBLE CONTENT

One way to play our part in caring for the environment is to be sure that when we print something, it’s right first time. Pelikan ink and toner are wipe-resistant for smudge-free and streak-free printing, giving you professional-looking documents. And with Pelikan’s precise colour reproduction, you always have a perfect print image.

Apart from expert quality, we always offer cartridges with technically, highest possible content, to establish a fair balance between the container and the ink or toner inside of the container.

REMANUFACTURED CARTRIDGES

Another way is to reuse empty cartridges whenever possible, giving them a second life as a remanufactured cartridge. Pelikan has a free recycling programme and not only collects empty Pelikan cartridges, but also empty cartridges of other manufacturers. We offer a free recycling service – providing recycling bags and boxes and collect them when they are full.

By doing so, Pelikan collected nearly 1.500 ton of empty cartridges in 2015. Of which more than 1.200 ton could be reused. We reuse 100% of all non-wearing parts of empty toner cartridges in our remanufacturing process, saving up to 1.5 kg of raw material per cartridge.

EMPTY CARTRIDGE PROGRAMME

Some empty cartridges that we collect cannot be reused due to legal or quality reasons. These cartridges are being decomposed by specialized, certified companies and reused as raw material for other industries.

Pelikan remanufactures in Europe and for Europe, according to laws and regulations of legal remanufacturing, minimizing pollution caused by transportation.
