New Life Cycle Assessment Confirms Clover Imaging Printer Cartridges Have Lower Environmental Impact than OEM Cartridges

 — Today, Clover Imaging Group, a global leader in environmentally sustainable print and imaging solutions, announced completion of a new comparative Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) that assessed Clover Imaging remanufactured toner cartridges versus their original equipment manufacturer (OEM) counterparts from a cradle-to-grave perspective. This third-party peer reviewed LCA was performed by Aspire Sustainability, a leader in performing innovative LCA studies with a portfolio spanning over 50 product and technology categories.

Based on the environmental indicators evaluated, the Clover Imaging remanufactured black and color toner cartridges were found to exhibit lower environmental life cycle impacts compared to their OEM counterparts in all the statistically significant impact categories studied. Sensitivity and uncertainty analyses indicate that the results were robust with respect to key assumptions and are statistically differentiated.

When analyzing the entire life cycle of a Clover Imaging remanufactured black printer cartridge (200891P) compared to the OEM equivalent cartridge (HP CF226A), key findings included:

  • 53% lower carbon footprint
  • 59% lower energy footprint
  • 52% less impact on natural resources
  • 66% lower impact on human health
