Hewlett-Packard Company announced its plans to redesign the cartridges to make their use is generally more environmentally friendly to the environment.

Structural changes are to reduce the size and weight of the shell cartridges, which will contain more material recycled.

According to the company, these changes will reduce the number of cartridges used for the production of material in 2007 to 7 thousand tons, of which 2.7 tons of polyvinyl chloride.

The company expects a smaller cartridge design will reduce the amount released into the environment by 14 thousand tons of carbon dioxide, leading to the greenhouse effect.

Emission reductions will be possible thanks to the fact that a smaller cartridge design will be packed into shipping containers in large volumes. More dense packing will use fewer vehicles. For example, currently shipping cartons may contain a cartridge instead of the 203 144 previously.

Since 2003, the weight of the HP print cartridges in total was reduced by 80%. This program is only for North America. Tells CNews.
