How does the price of your cv printer compare to others?
And, if you can afford to spend the extra cash, are you better off with the option?
For the first time in its nearly 15-year history, the UK government is considering requiring all new printers to be more environmentally friendly.
With cvs, the new rules will mean the manufacturers will have to switch to anaerobic digesters, which will reduce their carbon footprint by up to 70 per cent.
Acer and HP have already switched to the technology, but the British manufacturer has not yet been tested in testing.
The UK’s Environmental Audit Agency is due to deliver a report on the new cvs rules in the autumn.
But, in a letter to manufacturers, the regulator has said it will not force them to do so.
Instead, the government wants to see the industry move towards a ‘low carbon’ model by 2025, with no significant carbon emissions from production, packaging and manufacturing by 2020.
In its letter to the industry, the environment watchdog said there are no new laws or regulations currently requiring the use of recycled materials.
“We are concerned that this will leave the industry in a position where its capacity to make products is limited by the availability of recycled material,” it said.
However, the watchdog added that it is not concerned with whether the industry should be forced to use recycled material, because the regulations are designed to encourage it to do that.
It also said it is ‘committed to ensuring that the UK industry has the technology and knowledge to be in a good position to meet its climate targets, and ensure the environment is protected’.
The watchdog also urged the industry to adopt a ‘zero carbon approach’, meaning that all products produced from materials made with carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are to be manufactured using recycled materials, and that all materials used in packaging are to use materials made from recycled materials by 2020 and reused by 2020-21.
This means that if you’re looking to buy a cvs printer, you might be better off looking elsewhere.
Acer currently produces some of the cheapest cvs printers in the world, at £50 and £75, respectively.HP is also one of the UK’s biggest companies, producing some of its most popular products, such as its X1 series.
So, if your printer is expensive, then the cheaper options could be cheaper.
If you’re just looking to save money, you could also look to buy an LED printer from a supplier that makes a good range of printers and displays, rather than a printer that’s more expensive.
