Mercian Zero

12th February 2019 Chris 0 Comments

Mercian Zero is our focus on environmental impact, reassuring you that 0% production goes into landfill, giving you and your product total peace of mind.

  • Solvents – Our digital processes use no solvents, unlike offset, liquid toner or solvent based inkjet
  • Zero to Landfill – all of our waste is converted to energy
  • De-inking – our digitally printed labels are fully de-inkable during recycling, unlike suppliers using liquid toner
  • Sustainable paper supplies – our self-adhesive paper labels are produced from recycled paper or from sustainable forests
  • We specify recyclable plastics as a preference – such as Polypropylene for our synthetic labels. We segregate waste on-site.
  • Our digital toners are FDA foodsafe
  • We use an ERP system designed to minimise and monitor any waste to minimise our environmental impact
  • We are happy to advise on the correct combinations of materials to maximise product recyclability
  • We will advise on Light-weighting – reducing your packaging impact on the environment


If you are looking for a sustainable label solution, visit our stand B25, at the Packing and Innovation Show at the NEC on 27th -28th of February.
