Usage of the recycled materials
Konica Minolta has made further advances on its unique chemical processing technology. It has also increased its use of recycled PC/PET and has raised the PCR ratio*1 to approximately 70%. This recycled material accounts for more than 25% of the weight ratio of the total resin volume in the main unit. The ratio of recycled materials in the surface area of the machine has increased to approximately 78%.
*1 PCR (post-consumer recycling): the ratio of municipally recycled materials used in the recycled materials
Top class power consumption and TEC value in its class
The MFP’s CPU power is set to turn off during sleep mode. This results in a best-in-class 0.5 W power consumption ratio (during sleep mode). The TEC value has also been reduced approximately by 5-18%. CO2 emission from the MFP is drastically reduced.
Comparison of TEC values (in Europe and other regions) of previous models (bizhub C364e/C284e/C224e) and the bizhub C368 series.
* Values for 220-230 V
* TEC values applied to the International Energy Star Program Version 2.0
Yearly CO2 emissions:
TEC value × 52 weeks × emission factor
