Green Certification for Kodak Alaris Scanners

EMEA, Technology, Supplier News, United Kingdom, Document Management

Kodak Alaris has added twelve document scanners to the Green Electronics Council's Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) registry of greener electronics manufacturers.

 

The Kodak S2085f Scanner and Kodak S3000, S2000 and E1000 Series Scanners have now been certified as operating within ENERGY STAR guidelines for energy efficiency and the reduction of hazardous substances and waste products, earning the EPEAT Gold ecolabel - the highest level of certification possible.

 

The new certifications also mean Kodak Alaris has more Gold-registered scanners than any other manufacturer.

 

EPEAT is designed as an easy-to-use resource for purchasers, manufacturers, resellers and others wanting to find or promote environmentally preferable products. Public and private entities in more than 42 countries use EPEAT as a uniform purchasing specification.

 

To be added to the EPEAT Registry, products must meet a stringent set of environmental performance criteria. In addition to these baseline criteria, which qualify a product for the Bronze ecolabel, there are also a set of optional criteria, which determine if a product is rated Silver or Gold. Products that meet all of the baseline/required criteria plus 50% of the optional criteria qualify for Silver rating. Products that are compliant with 75% of the optional criteria qualify for the Gold ecolabel. The following scanners from Kodak Alaris are now listed in the EPEAT Gold Registry: Kodak S2085f, S3060, S3100, S3100f and S3120; Kodak S2040, S2050, S2060w, S2070, and S2080w; and Kodak E1025 and E1035 Scanners.

 

EPEAT registration signifies that electronic equipment is manufactured in accordance with the ISO 14000 standard; that products are compliant with Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) requirements; that products are designed to be recyclable; and that products are ENERGY STAR rated.

 

The recently launched Kodak S3000 Series Scanners were designed with these basic requirements in mind, as well as the more difficult criteria, such as:

• A total of 5% of the product’s plastic is sourced from post-consumer recycled content.
• Product packaging is comprised of 90% (by weight) recyclable materials.
• A Product Life Cycle Assessments is registered in a National Database.
• Public disclosure of supply chain toxics is available.

 

John Blake, Senior Vice President Marketing & Product Management for the Alaris division of Kodak Alaris, comments:

"In total, we have 33 products listed on the EPEAT Registry. All of our scanners are rated at least Silver and exceed EPEAT’s requirements for environmental performance, and now twelve of our scanners are rated Gold."

The Green Electronics Council uses a 'declare and verify' system to govern the addition of products to the EPEAT Registry. To register products, manufacturers must sign a contract requiring them to accurately declare that their products meet system criteria. Manufacturers must possess and produce evidence to support all declarations (as specified in the relevant standard) upon request by the Green Electronics Council and/or their Conformity Assurance Body.
