Laser device to help in reusing printed paper
The University of Cambridge is making efforts to cut down on the wastage of paper. The university has come up with a new laser-powered device that will help in reusing the paper by wiping the existing print using lasers.
Researcher David Leal-Ayala says: “You couldn’t do this indefinitely, printing and then erasing the type on a piece of paper again and again until the end of time. Researcher David Leal-Ayala says a piece of paper can be reused about three times before you start noticeably damaging it.”
The best part about using this device is that users won’t need any special inks or printer to execute the paper re-using process. Additionally, the device is compatible with all ink colors and hence offers an extended usage. Using the same paper thrice would surely contribute to saving it.
