    HP study says remanufactured printer cartridges unreliable
    November 
    2006Beware remanufactured printer cartridges, says Hewlett-Packard’s
    Scott Canonico, manager of environmental policy and strategy at the
    Silicon Valley company. Their failure rates can negate short-term
    savings from their lower price.Canonico says an HP-sponsored study by
    Moorpark, Calif.-based QualityLogic, a quality testing service company,
    concluded that remanufactured cartridges have major reliability
    problems,Results from the study say that 70% of remanufactured inkjet
    cartridges and 80% of remanufactured laserjet “exhibited reliability
    problems,” in contrast with 2% of original HP cartridges. The study
    defines a reliability problem as “leaking cartridges,
    cross-contaminated colors, and cartridges that printed no pages.” In
    addition, the study says that approximately 17% of all refilled inkjet
    cartridges failed prematurely, but did not cite the failure percentage
    for original HP cartridges.Major ink and toner manufacturers, including
    HP, Canon, Epson, and Lexmark, have cartridge recycling programs for
    their laserjet cartridges at the very least, if not for their inkjets
    as well. Users can request a postage-paid envelope online and return
    the cartridge to the manufacturer, or in many cases, use a similar
    process to return many cartridges at once in bulk. In some cases, the
    cartridges are recycled completely, while others are remanufactured for
    reuse. HP does not remanufacture cartridges sent in by customers.
    Instead, it recycles the raw materials to make other products, Canonico
    says, such as clothes hangers, automobile parts, processing trays, and
    even parts for other electronics such as scanners. Printer cartridges
    “are designed for single use, where we’ve optimized the product to work
    for that original life, and there’s a huge amount of technology that
    goes into the product itself,” says Canonico. “It’s a tuned system, and
    when you introduce a third party ink into an inkjet cartridge, you’re
    not going to get the same level of performance.” What ends up happening
    to compensate for an under-performing cartridge is a great deal of
    waste in the form of reprints, which use unnecessary paper and energy
    as well as ink or toner.Canonico says the material that HP uses for its
    laserjet and inkjet cartridge packaging is made out of recycled
    paperboard, and newer cartridges use fewer overall materials, making
    them easier to recycle. “We’ve reduced the size of laserjet packaging
    through some design innovations, and also used more recyclable
    material,” he says. “We have about 30% greater space use efficiencies
    for laserjet cartridges, which means 30% more cartridges per pallet,
    1500 more cartridges in an ocean container, and less truck traffic—a
    big one for the environment.”
