As an example, Toshiba Americas Business Solutions (TABS) unveiled the world's first multifunction copier with erasable toner in April 2013. The e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 produces printed pages that can be erased up to five times. Reusable paper is returned to the unit's upper drawer; pages that cannot be fully erased are sent to the bottom drawer to be recycled. This process allows users to dramatically minimize paper usage while reducing CO2 emissions by up to 57%.* To further minimize our customers' carbon footprint, the e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 integrates bio-based plastics, which produce 20% less CO2 emissions during production, compared to traditional petroleum-based versions.
