Fake Information About China and the Environment Revealed
Chinese companies have come under criticism for their poor environmental credentials.
“There’s some misleading information going around that would have you believe the Chinese only do compatible imaging supplies,” says Samuel Liang (pictured).
“Other misinformation that is spread around is that the Chinese don’t care about the environment and remanufacturing.”
Liang, who is the Sales and Marketing Manager at Ninestar G&G, says he wants to set the record straight. He wants to reveal that not all cartridge remanufacturers are necessarily the same, even in China.
“Some other key points that many buyers get wrong include:
- Despite being tougher on waste entering the country, the Chinese government does grant licenses to some companies operating within the country to import waste electronic products that can be reused and remanufactured;
- In order to comply with international requirements, every empty cartridge must be documented, graded and stored separately before being remanufactured to make sure they are returned to the same region from which they originated, particularly in the European Union;
- The remanufacturing process is not just a matter or refilling the ink or toner and is a lot more complicated than many realise. Saving water and avoiding water pollution, for example, are critical during inkjet remanufacturing.”
Liang, who is currently based in Zhuhai, China, is one of the three keynote speakers at this year’s RT Hot Potatoes Webinar being held on January 26, 2023.
Liang says he will take webinar participants on a tour of the Ninestar factory to reveal what else is being done for the environment.
Buyers should be asking more questions about the processes used to remanufacture a cartridge and not just accept all remanufactured cartridges at face value.
“My presentation will reveal how hot an issue remanufacturing is,” Liang adds. “There’s much more that can be done during the remanufacturing process that adds to the sustainability of printer cartridges.”
The event will be run on January 26, 2023. Click here for more details and to register.
