Outstanding environmental performance
Low-noise design for a quieter office
The bizhub C281 series reduces operating noise by employing fewer fans and a design that minimises noise from emitting outside the machine.
Simitri HD toner
Simitri HD toner reduces environmental impact during its production and consumes less power during use thanks to low-temperature fusing. The black toner is carbon neutral as it is produced with plant-based biomass materials.
Power button for easy energy saving
The bizhub C281 series can easily be switched to Sleep mode by pushing the Power button. In addition, "ErP Auto Power Off" mode, which supports the ErP Directive*1, easily saves power when the bizhub is not in use.
*1 ErP Directive, also known as Eco-design Directive, is the EU Framework Directive which defines the environmentally conscious design requirements for energy-related products.
Easily clears Energy Star Program TEC values
The bizhub C281 series' energy-saving design clears the Energy Star Program Ver. 2.0 TEC values by a large margin. TEC values are even much lower than the previous model helping to significantly reduce CO2 emissions.
Yearly CO2 emissions:
TEC value × 52 weeks × emission factor
