A new kind of eco-friendly paper can be reused 260 times

There is not a lot of hard data on how much heat you need and how long you need it for, but what they have said is that their thermo paper can be reused 260 times and would be available for sale within a year or two.

The problem is that although it sounds very good to have reusable paper that makes us not waste paper, it is clear that if things are not quantified, we may speak just the opposite since for its production and the material itself it may consume many more resources than normal paper creation.

In addition, despite not using electricity, the necessary heat may require much more energy than that used for electronic ink, as well as being more complicated to administer.

How does it work:

Formed by a plastic film covered by a cholesteric liquid crystal (whatever that is), the paper does not need back lighting to be printed (that little light that you see how it goes up and down when you scan your face or any other part of the body in office) and may have different colors. A modified printer is able to reverse the writing process, leaving the paper free of drawings and characters. In addition, despite not using electricity, the necessary heat may require much more energy than that used for electronic ink, as well as being more complicated to administer.
