'Recycling' ink cartridges now possible here
AN innovative breakthrough solution was launched yesterday for the
first time in Sri Lanka, for the "recycling" of empty ink cartridges.
Using state-of-the-art German inkjet recycling technology, it involves a
fully automated recycling process and guarantees absolute safety of the
desk top printer.
Introducing this facility at a media presentation in Colombo,
Director/CEO of ABC Trade & Investments Pvt Ltd, A. Jayaseelan said that
until now computer users had to either choose from buying comparatively
expensive new cartridges or having their old ones manually refilled.
"Although a much cheaper option, the unconventional hand filled
methods have recorded high failure rates around the world and generally
fail to produce quality print results.
On the contrary, the recycling of cartridges has been a much favoured
option among computer users internationally. It involves a fully
automated recycling process ensuring proper cleaning, precise volume of
ink filling and cartridge testing while clients wait.
