Katun announce exclusive new cartridge style

Katun Corporation, an alternative supplier to the office equipment industry, has introduced the Katun ecoKAP™ Cartridges in EMEA. These new environmentally sustainable cartridges are exclusive to Katun and will provide industry partners with an eco-friendly choice to make a difference by using less waste. The Katun ecoKAP™ cartridge uses a patent-pending cap that facilitates the refilling to make the Katun cartridge truly re-usable. The ecoKAP™ cartridges are currently manufactured using more than 60% of recycled plastics with plans to increase the percentage in the future. Katun has introduced this technology to its Kyocera and Utax customer partners as it transitions to the Katun Performance™ toners for use in the Kyocera TaskAlfa 2554ci & 3554ci series devices as well as the Utax 2508ci & 3508ci series devices. Katun also

intends to extend this cartridge design to other brands and models within the portfolio to expand the environmental impact potential. Katun EMEA will also be introducing the Katun ecoKAP™ Refilled Cartridges, which can be refilled up to three times without comprising quality and functionality. “We are very excited to be introducing a truly environmental product to the office equipment channel, which will also become part of the expanding range of environmentally certified products,” said Heidi Boller, general manager for Katun EMEA. “The empty Katun ecoKAP™ cartridges will be readily accepted for recycling as part of our Core Collection Partner Services. Katun is very proud to be taking concrete steps to reduce the industry’s environmental impact by introducing Katun’s own brand circular economy product.”
