Caring for the environment by reducing print waste
During print and final production of printed products waste is created. This waste is plastic or paper sheets which are used to set up the machine and for achieving the optimal coloring and are then fed into the recycling process as waste sheets. Through optimized color management, the latest print machine technologies and improving processes in our in-house prepress, Renner Print Media was able to reduce the waste sheet portion by many tons per year. This saves resources, costs and ultimately better for the environment.
True resource conservation through waste-free production
Despite all measures taken, waste material is unavoidable in printing and punching processes. This waste is collected to 100% and fed to raw material recovery. In particular, the high-quality recycled polypropylene is used to produce plant post and similar products.
Modern technology reduces consumption of ink and varnish
With the installed modern Color-Management-Technology at Renner Print Media - an electronically calculated color composition per sheet, it is possible to considerably reduce the amount of ink and at the same time gain better image quality. Addionally Renner Print Media invested in a new varnish application roller with an innovative new surface which enables a reduction of varnish of over 30% at the same gloss level.
Traffic reduction through sophisticated warehouse logistics and a central production site
Renner Print Media operates the total production in one production site und has a local storage for raw material, to drastically reduce unnecessary transportation. The large stock of material allows Renner Print Media very fast reaction to short deadlines. In addition, the air conditioning of the material, especially with plastic, is an essential requirement for consistant high quality in the printing process.
Heat recovery from process exhaust air
The drive of the machines which are used for production at Renner Print Media produce waste heat. Normally this waste heat would get lost in the surroundings. However, through the use of a heat exchanger, Renner Print Media uses this heat for heating the building and hot water supply.
