FESPA Coffee Break: Coveme and Epta inks offer sustainable solutions
In this Coffee Break, Graeme Richardson-Locke FESPA’s Technical Support Manager is joined by Stefano Fabozzi, Product Manager at Coveme, and Daniele Uboldi, R&D, and Product Manager Textile at EPTA Inks.
These respected Italian headquartered, international businesses supply products across a wide range of industries with Coveme focussing in this case on their 70% recycled PET Kemafoil® KTR Transfer release films and EPTA Inks who are working hard to eliminate petrochemicals from their ink formulations in favor of BIO water-based inks. These have been developed using 82% certified materials from renewable sources. Both manufacturers are supporting the opportunity for textile printers to select more sustainable products in the production of transfers.
We’ll see that carbon reduction strategies begin by looking at how to move from the past where fossil fuel derivatives were the standard choice to a progressive future that uses biologically sourced and circular processes to achieve groundbreaking sustainability.
