Konica Minolta Top Green Technology Innovations

Konica Minolta’s commitment to innovative energy-saving technologies has been recognised with a prestigious award from Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry.

The bizhub C650 series, designed to help save natural resources by dramatically lowering energy consumption, picked up the Energy Conservation Grand Prize. The outstanding energy performance of the C650 range is achieved through the use of leading technologies, such as Konica Minolta’s Simitri Toner, which has a lower melting point and optimal power control in each operating mode.

According to John Venett, Konica Minolta USA Marketing Manager, recognising the importance of today’s global environmental issues and working on practical methods to help reduce the impact on the environment is a key commitment of the company.

“This award supports Konica Minolta’s environmental management philosophy, which is committed to providing high-quality products and services that not only meet customer needs but also offer reduced environmental impact,” claims Venett.

The typical energy load of digital colour MFPs is relatively high in raw material processing and machine operation stages. Konica Minolta has made strenuous efforts to develop technologies that improve environmental performance on these two stages. Konica Minolta Group is committed to working with its customers’ environmental concerns foremost in mind.
