Impression Paragraph (Ville Saint-Laurent, Quebec), a Canadian leader in global print solutions (offset, digital, large-format and finishing) as well as print marketing and print management services, has joined Agfa Graphics’ Energy Elite Eco initiative with the installation of an Agfa Arkana Smart Plate Processing System.

Combining Agfa’s Energy Elite Eco Program with Arkana smart plate processing technology yields the OEM’s full range of its ‘ECO3’ features. These include reduced chemistry consumption with extremely low replenishment rates (resulting in a total waste reduction of up to 50% and a bath life up to 150,000 square foot² before processor cleaning), plus the total elimination of rinse water equal to 95% of water savings.

The move fits perfectly with the company’s green mission and initiatives that were designed with a dedication to ecology, economy and extra convenience.
