Graphius Group is reducing its ecological footprint and opting for Adamas chemical-free offset printing plates from ECO3.

As a trendsetting international player in the graphics sector, Graphius strives for sustainable production. For example, we make conscious choices at every step in the production process. ‘The choice of the Adamas chemical-free printing plates from ECO perfectly reflects this and ensures our print preparations are considerably greener,’ says CEO Denis Geers. ‘In concrete terms, the waste stream generated by the fluids for the plate preparations will be reduced by at least 50%. Our choice of the Adamas plate has to do with the ecological benefits and the performance on one hand, while on the other, it was important for us to choose a partner with production capacity in Europe. After all, transport also has a major ecological impact.’

Frederik Dehing, Global Head of Sales at ECO3, confirms this. ‘With our Adamas chemical-free offset plates, our clients are taking an important step when it comes to sustainability. In the case of Graphius Group, this means not only saving hundreds of thousands of litres of water, but also avoiding the use of large amounts of corrosive development fluids. This is because the Adamas plates do not need any rinsing water and are washed with a limited amount of pH-neutral gum.’

ECO3 has its headquarters in Belgium. The company produces its offset plates for the European market in Germany. ‘At ECO3, we chose a global production infrastructure with a firm footing in Europe. This is a conscious choice made to ensure the maximum availability of our products to our clients. I am pleased that Graphius Group also attaches great value to this,’ says Dehing.

Going through almost 500,000 m² of aluminium printing plates every year, Graphius Group is one of the largest printing groups in Europe. After printing, the high-quality aluminium offset plates are recycled, with more than 99% of them suitable for reuse.

The press frequently refers to the “newspaper contract,” but the periodicals (magazines) endowed by Bpost are equally subject to this measure.

  • The current concession remains unchanged until June 30, 2024.
  • There will be no further use of the “Periodic Rate” from July 1, 2024. The aid will be given in the form of a tax credit (tax rebate), which publishers will have to quantify according to the number of subscribers within certain regions (zip codes).
  • A limited subsidy will continue from July 01, 2024 for commercial publishers and their subscribers in sparsely populated regions. These are areas with fewer than 225 people per square kilometer. You will find these areas in the dark colored boxes of the map below. For most of Flanders, there will be no subsidy for commercial publishers.

  • Non-commercial publishers – associations, mutual societies, etc. – will enjoy a tax discount in all of Belgium, including densely populated areas, as of July 01, 2024.

As soon as we receive more information we will issue a more detailed report. Further explanation can be obtained from your commercial contact or order supervisor if necessary.
