Mitsubishi Inkjet Papers - Ecologically Sustainable  (Company news)

Many paper grades that are printed with water-based inks are not deinkable, and cause problems in the recycling process. Mitsubishi
HiTec Paper
offers the solution in JETSCRIPT DL 9084: A deinkable, coated inkjet paper for use in commercial high-speed inkjet printing. The INGEDE certification validates this contribution by Mitsubishi
HiTec Paper to environmental sustainability.
With many paper grades that are printed with water-based inks, the ink cannot be removed or can only be partially removed from the paper during the de-inking process.
This can make a crucial difference to the recyclability of the paper. The commercial inkjet printing sector continues to grow, and with it, the importance of deinkability for recycling of paper products used.
With the JETSCRIPT range, Mitsubishi HiTec Paper offers a broad portfolio of high-quality, coated inkjet papers for high-speed inkjet
printing. All products have a special ink receiving layer. Unlike uncoated or so-called "treated” papers, most of the ink is fixed in the coating, so does not penetrate deeply into the paper fibres. The ink receiving layer leads not only to product properties such as high optical density, but also to the fact that JETSCRIPT papers printed with water-based inks are deinkable.
"With JETSCRIPT DL 9084, and also with our other matt coated media, we offer deinkable inkjet papers for commercial high-speed printing," says Monika Stubbe, Head of Sales Inkjet Papers at Mitsubishi. "With this product we contribute to an as closed as possible paper cycle, and protect the environment."
In close cooperation with FOGRA and INGEDE, the International Association of the Deinking Industry, Mitsubishi HiTec Paper has conducted several de-inking tests. The result: JETSCRIPT DL 9084 has been INGEDE certified (INGEDE Method 11). This paper from Mitsubishi meets the requirements of the ERPC Scorecard and has received de-inking certificates for a number of water-based inks, which are used by digital printing machines such as Océ ColorStream, Kodak Versamark, Ricoh, InfoPrint and the HP T-Series.

Mitsubishi thermal papers approved by HP Indigo  (Company news)

The demand for personalized pre-printed media in small runs is increasing steadily.
HP Indigo is one of the leading printing technologies in this area. A wide range of thermal papers from Mitsubishi HiTec Paper has now been approved by HP Indigo.

Mitsubishi HiTec Paper is the first thermal paper manufacturer to offer a comprehensive range of approved products for use on HP Indigo digital presses:
•From 57 to 233 gsm
•With or without a protective top coat
•For front side or reverse side printing with the HP Indigo technology

The new thermoscript "I-series", a non top coated thermal paper, is perfectly pre-printable on the thermal front side on HP Indigo presses. The thermoscript "E-Series", a top coated thermal paper, offers excellent reverse-side printing features, whilst the "IE-Series" is printable on both sides on HP Indigo presses. The use of a primer is not necessary.
With these new product certifications, Mitsubishi is adapting to changing market conditions and customer requirements. Applications such as short runs of personalized event tickets or labels are now possible with HP Indigo pre-printed thermal paper. Thus, the advantages of both printing technologies are used effectively.

Mitsubishi HiTec Paper reduces CO2 emissions by 84% and becomes newest ...  (Company news)

... member of German “Wirtschaft pro Klima” initiative

Mitsubishi HiTec Paper takes the protection of the climate and environment seriously. New measures taken in Flensburg mill which reduce CO2 emissions by 84% prove this. This has led to the manufacturer of coated specialty papers becoming a new member of the German “Wirtschaft pro Klima” initiative.

The energy management system of ISO 50001 includes energy efficiency projects and these form the key aspects of Mitsubishi HiTec Paper’s company policy. The introduction of chemical flocculation of wastewater from the coaters before indirect discharge has led to a significant reduction in the specific power consumption from 8.5 to 1.3 kWh / m³ in Flensburg mill.

Annual savings of 239,000 kWh is roughly equivalent to the electricity consumption of 70 average German households. This means the speciality paper manufacturer has reduced CO2 emissions by 84% (source: German electricity mix 2012).

As a result of this successful measure to protect the environment, Mitsubishi HiTec Paper has become a new member of the German “Wirtschaft pro Klima” initiative. This initiative brings together German companies that are actively committed to protecting the climate. A commitment by senior management is the basis. In addition to this, members will have already taken at least one measure, by which they have reduced CO2 emissions by at least 20 per cent. They must also intend to take further action in the future, to further reduce CO2 emissions, in order to reach the 2 degree target of the UN Climate Change Conference 2010.

Inkjet printing on envelopes: True colours and brilliant!  (Company news)

Mitsubishi shows new JETSCRIPT inkjet paper for white space marketing on envelopes at Hunkeler Innovationdays 2013

In targeted marketing campaigns, individualised one-to-one marketing is the key for better marketing success. The envelope can even be the
deciding factor whether or not the recipient will open his mail. Every plain white envelope is a waste of valuable advertising space. Mailings using printed envelopes show a significantly higher recall rate.
Mitsubishi HiTec Paper Europe recognises this as a high priority application and is now offering JETSCRIPT ML 9084, a coated inkjet paper which is specifically designed for this application and provides brilliant results.
The wide colour gamut and high resolution of the 87g coated paper enable accurate reproduction of colour specifications. The reverse side is offset and flexographic printable, and the high whiteness of the coated surface enables the best barcode readability. The coated paper is not only deinkable, but also FSC® Mix certified.
Optimal folding and finishing quality and the fast drying time of the ink thanks to the ink-receiving layer complete the product, making JETSCRIPT ML 9084 the medium of choice for white space marketing on envelopes.
Visit Mitsubishi at Info Booth G06 at HID 2013 (February 11-15, 2013,
Lucerne/Switzerland) and learn more about the full range of JETSCRIPT inkjet papers for commercial inkjet printing and a variety of applications such as direct mail & envelopes, transaction & transpromo, labelling and book printing.

Citizen qualifies thermal paper from Mitsubishi  (Company news)

Elaborate testing guarantees long life cycle of thermal printers

Citizen Systems Europe certifies thermal paper from Mitsubishi HiTec Paper Europe for POS-printer Citizen CT-S801 and Citizen CT-S851. The certification covers
conventional and newly developed thermal paper without bisphenol-A and phenol.
The direct-thermal technology enables printing of variable information at low costs. Mitsubishi papers have been tested in thermal printers from Citizen in an extensive long-term test. All papers successfully passed the quality inspection thus guaranteeing a very long durability of printers as well as trouble-free and good printing in the long-term.
The release includes all thermoscript thermal paper grades for “point of sales“ applications: F 5041, P 5045, P 5055, P 5046 and P 5047. The last-mentioned papers have been developed in 2010 and provide an alternative to traditional POS-grades because of the selected colour developer. The special difference: thermal receipt printing paper grade P 5046 does not contain any bisphenol-A whereas P 5047 does not contain phenol.
“Citizen focuses very much on quality and sustainability”, explains Jörk Schüssler, European Marketing Manager at Citizen Europe Systems. “Our quality requirements do not only comprise printers themselves but also thermal paper because low paper quality shortens the life cycle of printer and printer head and causes poor printing and problems. Papers which have been tested by us provide trouble-free running and good quality”.
“The certification by Citizen is important for us because it shows that an important provider of thermal printers has successfully tested our papers”, says Thomas Grammel, Product Manager OEM at Mitsubishi HiTec Paper Europe.
“Our cooperation with Citizen stands out due to the fact that we provide top-quality paper for high-value printers.”

Energy Management at Mitsubishi HiTec Paper Europe certified as DIN EN 16001 compliant  (Company news)

Mitsubishi HiTec Paper Europe (MPE) has long taken environmental and sustainability concerns into account in the production of its high-quality special papers. Now it's gone one step further: Its existing energy management system has been certified as DIN EN 16001 compliant.
Managing Director Gerhard Schoon emphasises that "MPE's existing energy management system was already an acknowledgement of the company's obligation to environmental preservation and responsible use of non-renewable resources". Energy concerns have routinely been reviewed within the framework of the environmental management system, and an energy management system has been in place for years, to great success. Recognising the increasing importance of energy as an issue at large, MPE has formally adapted energy awareness into the company's policies and has introduced an energy management system certified to the DIN EN 16001 standard.
"The recently certified system does more than just us in a position to pursue our goal of constant improvement of our energy efficiency and energy cutting efforts", notes Gerd Finkenhofer, MPE's energy management officer. "In the sense of continuous improvement, we naturally expect that before the year is out the current certification based on the European standard will be replaced by DIN EN ISO 50001 certification, which is valid worldwide and befits our globally active company".
The process of continuous improvements that has been initiated ensures responsible, sustainable handling of resources throughout the entire company. Among other contributions, it has been shown reduce greenhouse gas emissions. All units of the company are affected: from R&D to purchasing, from the production chain as a whole to maintenance and repairs and on to distribution logistics.
