Greenguard certified products must meet stringent chemical emissions requirements, such as being screened for more than 10000 volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Products have to undergo re-certification and quality monitoring tests on a regular basis to maintain this elite credential.
The Greenguard Environmental Institute (GEI) is an industry independent, third party certification organisation that qualifies products for low chemical emissions. Certified products can contribute to points in established green building programmes, satisfy code or ordinance criteria or meet indoor air quality specific RFP requirements.
Michael Lackner, Durst’s head of marketing, said, 'We are delighted to be awarded such an important environmental acknowledgement. Greenguard Certification is recognised around the world and is further evidence of Durst’s commitment in offering machines and inks that provide environmental protection and sustainability.'
Durst will also offer the Greenguard logo to customers who use the specified Rho inks in their printers. This will help to eliminate environmental claims by credibly communicating commitment to healthy buildings, customer well-being and sustainability.
