Soy Bean Toner Cartridges

It turns out the US currently uses over 100 million cartridges per year. To produce that amount of cartridges, 100 million pounds or 50,000 tons of oil must be processed. That means high-volume energy consumption and tons of landfill afterwards.

In an effort to reduce this tremendous amount of nature’s raw materials, PRC Technologies, a division of Print Recovery Concepts Inc., announced a real environmental breakthrough. PRC has developed a way to make toner powder out of soybeans.

The company says soy toner is absolutely harmless to the printers. Just as harmless as it is for humans
