Environmental Sustainability

In the last two years, Fujifilm’s Bedford Manufacturing Plant has reduced greenhouse gas emission and reduced its carbon footprint by 10%

FUJIFILM Recording Media U.S.A., Inc. installed 1,870 solar panels at our Bedford, MA manufacturing facility.

The Fujifilm Bedford Solar array has produced 1,864,0455 kWH since the interconnection in November 2013. To put this into perspective the average home uses 638 kWH per month so the energy we produced so far would power 2,922 homes an entire month! The production of this solar energy offsets the use of 169,000 gallons of gasoline and has also eliminated the production of 1,148 tons of CO2 emissions.

Our Plastic is Now Better for the Environment

What makes the plastic we use in our library packs better?

  • Our new DPET plastic requires at least 20% less energy to produce, reducing our carbon footprint
  • Due to lower energy use there is a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions

What makes buying library packs vs. P-Cases even better?

  • Purchasing library packs eliminate 80% of landfill waste by weight compared to P-Case configuration
  • Library packs are made from recyclable material. FUJIFILM Recording Media U.S.A., Bedford plant will even recycle them for you
  • Our library packs allow for quicker access to the tape cartridges

We are Committed to Helping Data Centers Realize Efficiencies and Cost Reductions

Tape Uses Significantly Less Energy Than Disk

When comparing the number of megawatt hours consumed:

Average Total MWHs for Disk: 5053
Average Total MWHs for Tape: 67

The average cost of energy for disk solutions is about 76 times the average consumption of tape solutions!*

The energy requirements to keep disk operating correctly can be very costly – just think how much cooling is needed to keep a data center running. Tape doesn’t need sophisticated warehouses to keep it safe and requires far less energy to operate.

*According to a study by The Clipper Group, comparing the average cost for disk and tape used for archiving over 9 years.
