Using compatible brand ink cartridges, also known as generic cartridges, is one way of saving the environment. A total cartridge lab that tests and evaluates remanufactured toner cartridges to assure standardized quality has been functioning since July, 2001 at the National Center for Remanufacturing and Resource Recovery (NCR3) at Rochester Institute of Technology's Center for Integrated Manufacturing Studies (CIMS). Its mission is purported to help the remanufacturing industry design and construct standardized products to near-new condition with no adverse consequences to the environment. The toner cartridge remanufacturing industry continues to evolve internationally with thousands of companies employing tens of thousands of people yielding over a hundred million dollars in revenue in the U.S. alone.
