    Secret Agent’ For Xerox Toner Helps Company Uncover More Energy Savings
    (ANOTHER SPYING SOFTWARE BY XEROX)
    Rochester, NY – Xerox Corporation has deployed a “secret agent” to help it conserve more energy.
    A
    secret E-Agent, that is The E-Agent – or embrittling agent – is a
    special chemical ingredient that is reducing the amount of energy
    needed to make certain Xerox printer toner by up to 22 percent. As a
    result, Xerox is well on the way to saving more than 30 million
    kilowatt hours of electricity by 2008 – enough power to light more than
    24,000 U.S. households for a year – and making strides toward its goal
    to cut global greenhouse gas emissions.”The manufacturing of supplies -
    especially toner manufacturing – is among the most energy-intensive
    activities within Xerox,” says John R. Laing, senior vice president,
    Xerox Supplies Delivery Unit. “With ongoing Xerox innovations like
    E-Agent, we’re helping Xerox not only reduce costs but also contribute
    to a cleaner environment and live the values of Earth Day all year
    long.”Xerox is the inventor and world’s largest manufacturer of toner,
    producing it in eight locations worldwide, including Webster, N.Y., and
    in Oklahoma City, Okla. Toner is the “dry ink” powder fused on paper to
    make laser prints and copies. In the conventional toner manufacturing
    process, large particles of plastics, colorants and other additives are
    mechanically pulverized into small, relatively uniform toner particles.
    It takes about 50 of these toner particles to print a period on this
    page.The grinding process is the most energy-intensive step, consuming
    up to 40 percent of the total energy used for making toner. The
    “grinding” happens when toner particles are blown against each other at
    high speeds inside a chamber, and the collisions cause the particles to
    split apart.Xerox engineers knew that if the toner particles become
    easier to grind, the whole process becomes more energy efficient. They
    discovered that by adding the embrittling agent to the toner “recipe,”
    particles would be more likely to shatter upon contact and reach the
    desired particle size more quickly. Depending on the product family,
    E-Agent makes the grinding rate up to twice as fast.
    The patented
    E-Agent process has been successfully implemented in toner for some
    Xerox products – such as the Xerox DocuPrint and DocuTech families of
    digital presses and printers – and is in the process of being tested
    for others.By 2008, the energy savings associated with Xerox’s use of
    E-Agent is expected to avoid over 18,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide
    emissions – the equivalent of saving the annual emissions from over
    2,500 midsize American cars.
    “We believe this ‘secret agent’ will be
    one of the success stories that helps Xerox achieve its greenhouse gas
    reduction goals,” Laing says.|Xerox has pledged to cut greenhouse gas
    emissions – the compounds in the atmosphere thought to trigger global
    climate change – from its worldwide operations by 10 percent over a
    10-year period. Xerox’s emissions result from using fossil fuels and
    buying electricity for power. To meet its target, Xerox is working to
    improve energy efficiency by 30 percent compared to 2002 levels,
    throughout its global operations.Xerox’s pledge aligns with its
    long-standing commitment to the protection of the environment and the
    health and safety of its employees, customers and neighbors. The
    company has received major environmental awards worldwide, and it has
    pioneered conservation and protective environmental policies well in
    advance of governmental regulations. In addition to innovations like
    E-Agent, Xerox continues to develop more energy-efficient processes,
    products and technologies to help both the company and its customers
    meet their environmental objectives.
