ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- March 21, 2013

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.”
