Sustainable Printing Inks Project

The Recyclate Initiative from Werner & Mertz is taking on a new challenge in matters of sustainability. Now that the project team has made plastic bottles from recycled material, it aims to produce printing inks according to the Cradle-to-Cradle® principle too. In the Cradle-to-Cradle® Printing Inks Project, Werner & Mertz has initiated development of sustainable UV printing inks in collaboration with the ink manufacturer Siegwerk Druckfarben AG & Co. KGaA and the EPEA Switzerland (Environmental Protection Encouragement Agency). “We have long wished for industry to push the development of sustainable UV printing ink. Thanks to the Initiative from Werner & Mertz and the engagement and know-how from Siegwerk and EPEA, we were able to take the critical steps that finally led to a breakthrough,” said Albin Kälin, CEO of EPEA Switzerland.
