Minimizing your printer's environmental impact

Minimizing your printer'senvironmental impact

Lexmark is committed to environmental sustainability and is continually improving its printers to reduce their impact on the environment. We design with the environment in mind, engineer our packaging to reduce materials, and provide collection and recycling programs. For more information, see:

The Notices chapter

The Environmental Sustainability section of the Lexmark Web site at www.lexmark.com/environment

The Lexmark recycling program at www.lexmark.com/recycle

By selecting certain printer settings or tasks, you may be able to reduce your printer's impact even further. This chapter outlines the settings and tasks that may yield a greater environmental benefit.

Saving paper and toner

Using recycled paper and other office papers

As an environmentally conscious company, Lexmark supports the use of recycled office paper produced specifically for use in laser (electrophotographic) printers. In 1998, Lexmark presented to the US government a study demonstrating that recycled paper produced by major mills in the US fed as well as non-recycledpaper. However, no blanket statement can be made thatall recycled paper will feed well.

Lexmark consistently tests its printers with recycled paper (20–100%post-consumerwaste) and a variety of test paper from around the world, using chamber tests for different temperature and humidity conditions. Lexmark has found no reason to discourage the use of today's recycled office papers, but generally the following property guidelines apply to recycled paper.

Low moisture content (4–5%)

Suitable smoothness (100–200Sheffield units, or140–350Bendtsen units, European)

Note: Some much smoother papers (such as premium 24 lb laser papers,50–90Sheffield units) and much rougher papers (such as premium cotton papers,200–300Sheffield units) have been engineered to work very well in laser printers, despite surface texture. Before using these types of paper, consult your paper supplier.

Suitable sheet-to-sheetcoefficient of friction(0.4–0.6)

Sufficient bending resistance in the direction of feed

Recycled paper, paper of lower weight (<60 g/m2 [16 lb bond]) and/or lower caliper (<3.8 mils [0.1 mm]), and paper that is cutgrain-shortfor portrait (orshort-edge)fed printers may have lower bending resistance than is required for reliable paper feeding. Before using these types of paper for laser (electrophotographic) printing, consult your paper supplier. Remember that these are general guidelines only and that paper meeting these guidelines may still cause paper feeding problems in any laser printer (for example, if the paper curls excessively under normal printing conditions).

Saving energy

Adjusting Power Saver

Available settings range from 2–240minutes. The factory default setting is 10 minutes.

Minimizing your printer's environmental impact
