SOY-BASED INK

Ink made from soy beans is not only better for the environment but better for your company's bottom line as well.

Soy-based ink benefits ;
  • Lower levels of volatile organic compounds than ink made from petroleum, meaning less harmful toxins emitted.
  • Produces brighter and sharper colours because of the innate clearness of the soy bean oil.
  • Makes paper easier to recycle because it's easier to remove in the de-inking process.
  • Prices are comparable to those of petroleum based ink, but less soy-based ink is needed per print job and it reduces paper waste, so you are actually saving money.
Soy-based ink is currently only available for commercial printers, not your office printers or ballpoint pens.
  • Soy beans only use about 0.5 percent of the total energy that is needed to create the ink.
  • About one quarter of commercial printers in the US operate using soy ink.
  • When soy ink reaches its full potential, it will consume 457 million pounds of soy bean oil per year.
