PaperLab is the world's first1 compact office papermaking system capable of producing new paper from securely shredded waste paper*2 with minimal use of water*3.
The PaperLab concept will be shown for the first time in Europe at CeBIT as part of a major demonstration of Epson's latest innovative compact, eco-efficient and high precision workplace technology.
PaperLab can recycle waste paper in the office using a dry process, therefore creating an office 'eco-system' that reduces CO2 emissions, increases savings on collection, disposal and logistics; ensures secure disposal of confidential documents and saves water, which is used in huge volumes in traditional recycling processes.
Organisations will be able to use PaperLab to produce paper of various sizes, thicknesses and types, from office paper and business card paper, to paper that is coloured and scented.
1 This is the world's first paper production system to use a dry process.
*2 The system can use ordinary A3- and A4-sized copy paper as raw material.
*3 A small amount of water is used to maintain a certain level of humidity inside the system.
