We all agree using remanufactured ink cartridges are better for the environment and can prevent one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. However, did you know that in order to ensure print quality, a lot of water is needed to clean the residual ink of used original cartridges? If the manufacturers do not treat sewage produced during the remanufacturing process properly, do you think those remanufactured products that come at the cost of water pollution are qualified to be called the “environmental choice”? Are you fully aware of the sustainable characteristics of the products you are purchasing?
Ninestar’s customers feel assure that in addition to ensuring the integrity of the finished products, Ninestar always keeps environmental compliance in manufacturing, aiming to minimize negative environmental impacts.

“In 2020, the annual treatment of inky wastes is 27375 m³ at our plant. Except for the strict pretreatment, our engineers run regular after-treatment tests every 4 hours to guarantee the sewage will not be discharged until it is clarified completely. In fact, the processed black water is clean enough to be reused again. At Ninestar, we reuse this water in our daily life, like watering flowers and grass.” said Jarek Yang, senior product manager of Ninestar.
Ninestar is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and continually offering remanufactured range alternatives to customers coupled with its closed-the-loop recycling program. As the sustainable manufacturing is an imperative part of Ninestar’s “going green” strategy, Ninestar ensures that the environmental policy is implemented during its production.
