HP Innovates Cartridge Recying Program
HP has developed the ability to use recycled plastics in the production of new HP inkjet print cartridges, according to this report. More than 200 million cartridges have been manufactured using the process thus far. HP used more than 5 million pounds of recycled plastic in its inkjet cartridges last year, and the company plans to use twice as much in 2008. The amount of recycled content in the new cartridges varies between 70 to 100 percent of the total plastic used.
HP’s recycling process uses a range of plastic products, from water bottles to HP inkjet cartridges. Since first piloting the process, HP claims to have used enough recycled plastic to fill more than 200 tractor trailers.
