AccurioJet KM-1e secures deinking certification

Konica Minolta has announced that its AccurioJet KM-1e press has been accredited by the International Association of the Deinking Industry (INGEDE) for the deinking of uncoated paper printed on the system.

The process enables such the deinked uncoated paper to go into the recycling process, thus offering a more environmentally friendly solution to users.
 
Key process steps for deinking are detaching ink film from the paper, ink fragmentation into a suitable size range and removal from the pulp slurry.

The accreditation comes after the press had already secured INGEDE deinking certification for coated papers, including even recycled qualities.

Hidetoshi Omo, head of competence KM-1 at Konica Business Solutions Europe, comments: “We are extremely proud to have received the accreditation from INGEDE for the Konica Minolta AccurioJet KM-1e, which rewards a great deal of hard work and inspiration from our development teams, and underpins our commitment to sustainability.
 
“The AccurioJet KM-1e is a press that enables almost endless possibilities for printing on a vast range of different substrates, and with so few digital presses having achieved this deinking standard, the press stands out even more from the competition now, giving our customers greater possibilities to grow their businesses in a sustainable way.”
