New HP Printer Ditches Nasty PVCs

Computer manufacturer HP has released a couple of printers of late which grabbed our attention for various eco-friendly reasons. The company is now back with another greener printer, said to be extremely energy efficient and lacking in polyvinyl chloride (PVC) chemicals within its body.

The HP Envy 100 e-All-in-One, part of a larger roll out this week of a range of newer HP printing solutions, is said to be the world’s first PVC free printer. This PVC free design reportedly meets the “evolving definition of PVC free as set forth in the iNEMI Position Statement on the Definition of ‘Low-Halogen Electronics’ (BFR-/CFR-/PVC-free).” This printer is also Energy Star qualified, meaning its energy efficiency rating is better than many other printers currently on the market.

Other features of the HP Envy 100, which will likely be available in October for around $250, include a high-resolution touchscreen display, very quiet operation, a retractable paper tray, one touch apps that print from the Web without a PC and built-in memory card slots that let one print photos from a digital camera’s memory card directly from the printer without need for an attached computer.
