PETcast #10: Ricoh Company Ltd., Japan

The PETplanet Road Show reaches Tokyo! In this PETcast we discuss an interesting PET non-food application with Mr Tsuyoshi Imamura who is the Director for Chemical Technology and Products Division at office equipment manufacturer Ricoh.

The company which has a presence in around 200 countries globally started to produce toner cartridges made from PET back in the year 2000. During the years it also began to use rPET and developed that part continuously. As a result Ricoh was able to optimise sustainability and reduce container weight and costs siginificantly.
