Life Below Water
The “dry” digital print process by Kornit demands less water for washing and curing imprinted pieces. This results in significantly decreased pollution of freshwater and ocean habitats.
Life on Land
By providing an efficient, agile mechanism for producing on-demand, Kornit technology means only producing what is needed. Thus, reducing the amount of unsold inventory going directly to landfills (or, in other unfortunate cases, being burned). When producers can better align supply with demand, they reduce carbon footprint by eliminating overproduction.
