Discharge to Air Test and Blue Angel certification
Kyocera products are tested for ultra-fine particle number emission factors (or rates), indoor air quality pollutants, carcinogenic or any other indoor pollutants – dust, ozone, styrene, benzene, VOC (Volatile organic compounds) for pre-operation phase and printing. The tests were performed by Blue Angel, a German certifier.
The Blue Angel eco-label was created in 1977 by the German Ministry of the Interior, the Environmental Ministers of the Federation and the Federal States. This eco-label is awarded to products that meet or exceed the strict environmental standards set by the institute. There are strong movements to establish international standards for labeling environmentally friendly products and consumables. Kyocera has been receiving the Blue Angel Mark since March 1992.
