Protect the Environment

At Mitchell Press, we are doing everything possible to improve energy efficiency, conserve resources, and minimize our impact on the environment — from building a highly energy-efficient modern facility to acquiring environmentally-friendly print production technology.

Eco-Friendly Printing

Save Water

The use of environmentally-friendly Sonora process free plates by Kodak enables us to completely eliminate water from the process of making plates — saving thousands of litres of water every year.

Eliminate Solvents

We haven’t just eliminated water from our process. Using Sonora plates also allows us to eliminate chemistry from plate making all together. This means that no toxic chemicals are entering our eco-system — ever.

In addition, our afterburners use solvents from the printing ink as fuel, enabling us to consume less gas and still destroy 99.9% of the volatile organic compounds.

Go Vegan

Mitchell Press uses vegetable-based inks and we clean our presses with enviro-friendly products.

Powersmart Facility

Mitchell Press is a leader in energy management and has met BC Hydro’s “PowerSmart” program requirements in the development of our energy-efficient facility. Some of the eco-friendly initiatives we implemented include:

  • High efficiency lighting with motion sensors to turn off lights automatically when not required.
  • 100% recyclable office carpets that are also made of 25% recycled materials.
  • Heat Recycling: Heat generated by our compressors and afterburners are used to heat our plant, significantly reducing our natural gas usage. In addition, our afterburners use the solvents from the printing ink as fuel, again enabling us to consume less gas.

Reduced Power Consumption: Our press chiller reduces power consumption by cooling water in rooftop units, using ambient air temperature during the cooler months.

Recycling Program

With environmental sustainability as our on-going mission, we consistently work to improve processes and eliminate waste. We also recycle all paper, plastic, wood and metal waste.
