Our eco-range

RISO is known throughout the world as a green company. RISO digital duplicators and inkjet printers provide high quality, high speed printing with a lessened environmental impact than other printing technologies.

RISO printers are among the most environmentally friendly printers on the planet. If you're concerned about the environment like all of us at RISO, you're searching for ways to reduce energy consumption, reduce air pollution, reduce waste, and be more "green".

Low or no emissions

Unlike toner-based printers, RISO printers are free from ozone emissions, toner particle emissions, silica dust, and other air pollutants. RISO printers do not emit any greenhouse gases.

RISO duplicator ink is soy based, which is more easily recycled. Also, soy ink does not release a significant volume of VOCs into the atmosphere. VOCs, or Volatile Organic Compounds, are emitted as gases from thousands of products, such as paints and lacquers, paint strippers, cleaning supplies, pesticides, permanent markers, glues and adhesives, and even copiers and printers. VOCs can negatively affect our health.

Because RISO duplicators and inkjet printers use a clean printing process, there is no need to use harsh cleaning solvents as part of the press cleaning process, which eliminates even more VOCs from ever entering the environment.

Energy savings

RISO duplicators and inkjet printers do not use a heat or laser process, so they consume a fraction of the energy required to run heat-intensive devices. This heatless process further reduces the need for compensatory cooling (air conditioning) and ventilation, which further reduces energy consumption and cost. This also reduces the strain on regional power generation facilities and electrical grid, reducing power companies' greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants.

The carbon footprint of RISO printers is negligible. A carbon footprint is the measure of the impact human activities have on the environment in terms of greenhouse gases produced measured in units of carbon dioxide. This is considered a huge contributor to global warming.
