Austrian Eco Label for printed paper products
Abstract:Austrian Eco Label for printed paper products applies to offset and electro-photographic digital printing methods. The environmental requirements contained in these criteria provide the printing company with guidance on how to contribute to sustainable development.
A printing company with the Austrian Eco Label has shown that it fulfils a number of environmental requirements which make it as least polluting as possible. This applies to the entire supply chain. The requirements encompass firstly the printing process and the paper and chemicals used by the printing company.
In case of digital printing, toners must be free of substances which could cause reproductive harm. They must be able to be reused or supplied to a material recycling scheme. The deinkability of toners has to be proven, which might be the most challenging requirement for digital printers.

For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
