FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

FAQ

What type of paper do I have to use?

You can use regular office paper. The Hybrid MFP can handle all paper weights from 64-80 g/m2. So there is no need to buy special paper.

What if I by mistake try to erase paper which was printed on a regular MFP?

That is not a problem. The regular toner will not be de-colourised during the erasing process. If you are using the Paper Reusing Device (PRD), the sheet will simply be sorted into the “non-reusable paper” drawer.

The paper I use was produced CO2 neutral. Why should I still use the Hybrid MFP?

Using paper – or any other product – which was produced CO2 neutral is very worthy cause. With the Hybrid MFP we simply go a step further: Instead of compensating for CO2 emission we want to avoid it altogether. By reusing paper, you avoid the CO2 emission related to producing the amount of paper otherwise needed to print the same amount of documents.

Do I have to throw away the paper if I write on it?

It is possible to make notes on documents, which were printed on the Hybrid MFP and still reuse the paper. All you have to do is use FriXion pens from the company Pilot. The Hybrid MFP as well as the optional PRD (e-STUDIO RD301) are capable of de-colourising the ink of these pens so that you can reuse the paper. However, if you use a regular pen, the ink cannot be de-colourised and therefore the paper cannot be reused.

Is the Hybrid MFP suitable for all offices?

The environmental benefit depends amongst other things on the average monthly document volume in your office. For a detailed analysis and an indibvidual offer please contact us.

How can I see how much I have saved?
The e-BRIDGE Paper Reuse Report is a tool which allows administrators to see how much paper (virgin as well as de-colourised) has been used, erased and saved with blue toner. This tool can track the usage of the Hybrid MFP and the PRD. If a PRD is installed it will also show how may of the erased pages were rejected and how many could be reused. You could use these reports as part of your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) reporting or newsletters. This way employees can see how much they have already contributed and stakeholders will know that you do everything to be a economical and ecological company.
