JK Group, part of Dover Digital Printing and Dover, announced several new initiatives that support improved sustainability.

JK Group said it developed a new way of packaging its reactive inks to reduce its environmental footprint, while also releasing an extended shelf life across all of its ink ranges.

The company's Kiian brand recently launched a new reactive ink series called Digistar Bellagio, with one of the new departures for this range being its Bag-in-Box (BiB) packaging.

Through this environmentally-friendly initiative, all reactive inks will now be packed in flexible, multilayered plastic bags, which are incorporated into a cardboard outer shell.

The system has several advantages and represents an 80% reduction in the use of plastic compared to traditional high-density polyethylene containers of a similar capacity, according to JK Group.

Additionally, the reduced packaging creates a reduction in shipping and warehouse space, leading to lower transport and storage costs and less environmental impact across the supply chain, according to JK Group.

"We are thrilled about these initiatives because not only are they better for the planet, but also for our customers, who are looking for cost-efficient ways to reduce their environmental impact. This represents a continued effort by all of our companies to improve the sustainability of our products," said Abhi Agrawal, president of Dover Digital Printing.

JK Group also announced a shelf life extension of all of its ink series. Harnessing continuous improvements in performance brought about by research and development activities, the company has conducted an in-depth analysis of its ink formulations, including stress tests, to determine more precisely how long they will last on the shelf.

The resulting extension of shelf life means improvements for stock management and order rationalization, enabling efficiency and cost savings.
