GreenPrint Version 2

I haven't come across GreenPrint before, but this is an innovative product that's cheap and will make someone a fortune.

Basically, the software eliminates unwanted pages from printing, with a claimed saving of 17% or more. According to the press release, the software analyses each page of every document sent to the printer and looks for typical waste characteristics (e.g. pages with just a URL, banner ad, logo, etc.) and then highlights and removes them. It also makes it easier to select only the pages you want to print, provides image removal options, and allows a file to be saved as a PDF rather than printing.

GreenPrint Technologies claims that the software saves the average user over $90 and 1,400 wasted pages per year.

Version 1.0, was launched in November 2006 but has since been redesigned for greater waste detection, an increase in speed (5 to 10 times faster than the old version, on average) and to introduce more features.

As well as releasing V2 of Home Premium, the company plans to launch a new version of its Enterprise edition shortly to add new print management and reporting functionality for large organisations.

Greenprint has also launched a free version; “We are committed to having the biggest positive impact we can, and providing GreenPrint World V2 at launch will help us accelerate our progress towards saving a million trees and a hundred million pounds of greenhouse gases,” said GreenPrint CEO Hayden Hamilton.

Great idea. Get your version from here.
