manroland Ecometer provides facts for an ecological balance sheet

Press release from the issuing company

Printing companies are increasingly being judged by the environmental friendliness of their production. Efficient energy and resource consumption harbors the potential for an improved ecobalance and reduced operating costs. The manroland Ecometer delivers precise numbers for calculating, planning, and documenting steps you can take for sustainability.

Ecometer: look what we can save
The manroland Ecometer lets you determine potential savings. It calculates the required energy and resources based on customer-specific information such as machine type, production volume, and paper consumption and offers specific suggestions for sustainably improving printing processes. In addition, it reveals the total savings that are possible over a year or over the total service life of a press. In addition to representing energy efficiency, reduced emissions, and resource savings, the Ecometer provides an ecological assessment for predefined press configurations and indicates savings for carbon dioxide, energy, and the cost of materials. The Ecometer thus gives you documented ecobalance data that can be ideally integrated in sales activities.

Interested printing companies should contact their manroland sales representative. Together, you will enter production data related to the environmental impact and energy consumption into the matrix of the Ecometer and get back information about potential savings and suggestions for improvement. The Ecometer is available in German and English and can be used worldwide.

In addition to the Ecometer, manroland offers a number of environment-saving solutions for webfed and sheetfed printing systems: technologies for recovering energy and heat, as well as for reduced waste and friction, systems for less washing agent consumption, or the use of alcohol-free dampening solutions – each of these building blocks contributes to sustainable production.
