Rudholm Group has partnered with Living Ink Technologies which developed an algae-based ink collection called Algae Ink™.  An innovative ink technology formulated with their carbon-negative pigment, Algae Black, is used by Rudholm for offset printing on paper products.

What is Algae Ink™?

Algae Ink™ is an environmentally friendly, renewable, and bio-based ink derived from repurposed waste algae biomass. This algae byproduct is leftover after extracting molecules for natural nutritional supplements and is repurposed by Living Ink to produce their carbon-negative black pigment that is used across various applications like paints, coatings, and the formulation of printing inks, such as Algae Ink™.

Algae Ink Advantages

  • Made from Waste Biomass (Spirulina Algae)
  • Jet black colour available
  • Comes from a carbon-negative pigment (the hangtags/paper itself are not carbon-negative)
  • Renewable and safe
  • Innovative
  • Vegetable-based soy ink
  • Compared to traditional soybean ink, it includes higher vegetable content (40-55%) while traditional soybean ink includes around 30%.

What Products does Rudholm offer this for?

  • Currently, Algae Ink™ is available for hang tags produced in China
  • As we continue to witness the growing demand for sustainable solutions, we plan to expand its usage to other product categories and countries soon.
