    ROCHESTER, N.Y., March 21 -- 


    KODAK SONORA XP Process Free Plates, the company’s recently introduced solution for process-free thermal plate technology, received a stellar rating in the Environmental Leader Technology Reviews program. The panel of judges recognized SONORA XP Plates successfully combine a strong business value proposition with environmentally sound technology innovation.

    “It’s gratifying any time our industry peers recognize the efforts we’ve taken to create more sustainable, next-generation solutions for our customers,” said Rich Rindo, General Manager of Kodak’s Worldwide Graphics Marketing organization. “SONORA XP Plates provide a solution that enables our customers to incorporate new technologies that positively impact both their environmental footprint and their bottom line, while providing print capability comparable to mainstream processed plates. We’re honored to receive this ranking from Environmental Leader Technology Reviews.”

    Designed for commercial printers of all sizes, as well as large web publication printers, SONORA XP Plates offer a commercially sound and environmentally improved solution for printing a wide range of applications. With SONORA XP Plates, printers can increase productivity, simplify operations, and lower costs by reducing steps in the platemaking process. At the same time, SONORA XP Plates eliminate the need for processing and chemistry, thus reducing energy and natural resource consumption. These key attributes create a solution that provides equally important economic and environmental benefits for the commercial printing market.

    The Environmental Leader Technology Reviews is a program recognizing excellence in products and services that provide companies with energy and environmental benefits. Scores were determined by a panel of independent judges from leading companies (see notes below about the program).

    With today’s crowded playing field, energy and sustainability professionals have a notoriously difficult time knowing what products to choose to help their companies increase energy, environmental and sustainability performance. The Environmental Leader Technology Reviews program gives companies a solid base of products, vetted by experts, from which to choose.

    “The caliber of the entries was impressive, and truly showed the innovation taking place in the industry today,” says Paul Nastu, publisher of Environmental Leader. “The judges had their work cut out for them. It was a tough playing field for those that entered, and the products that scored 3.5 stars or higher are those that the judges say have viable attributes that set them apart from others in the field.”
