Toshiba introduce paper recycling technology in offices in Japan

Toshiba TEC, the printing, imaging solutions and services has introduced eco-friendly e-STUDIO306LP/RD30 system for paper recycling in Shiga Prefectural Office, Japan.

This MFP system is based on environmentally friendly design and consists of the e-STUDIO306LP which prints the document in an erasable blue toner and the e-STUDIO RD30 which erases the identifiable print from paper.
