Impact on Performance:

The algae pigment ink performs the same way as traditional inks on coated and uncoated paper stock, enabling a sustainable choice for label programs of any scale globally.

Impact on Environment:

Re-purposed waste: Made from leftover food biomass waste that would otherwise end up in landfills.

Carbon Negative: Sequesters more carbon than it emits in the production process.

The algae-derived black pigment is a carbon black substitute.

Renewable: Grown by sunlight and harvested daily. Does not deplete finite resources.

Algae-based pigments are approximately 83% bio-renewable content.
