CASIO ECOFRIENDLY PROJECTORS IN THE INSTITUT QUIMIC DE SARRIÀ

“CASIO ECO-FRIENDLY PROJECTORS HELP PROVIDE GOOD SERVICE TO TEACHERS AND STUDENTS”
Juan Miguel Fornas, Head of IQS Maintenance

The IQS university is committed to the elimination of mercury and to zero maintenance by using CASIO eco-friendly projectors for its new building.


After 109 years of experience and excellence in teaching, the Institut Quimic de Sarrià (IQS) has become a benchmark institute committed to responding to the new challenges posed by the current social, economic, and industrial context. Ecology, sustainability, and protecting the environment are some of the values that IQS shares with the technology of CASIO eco-friendly projectors and which have led them to equip the classrooms of their new building with 17 models of the Japanese manufacturer’s Green Slim series.
“The fact that CASIO eco-friendly projectors contained no mercury was an interesting argument but being able to forget about maintenance during 20,000 hours was decisive” explains Juan Miguel Fornas, Head of IQS Maintenance. The Catalan establishment, one of the few to obtain the distinctive ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) accreditation for their Chemical Engineering degree, was one of the pioneers in eco-friendly projectors having already acquired five of them in 2011. “From the beginning we opted for CASIO since we considered it had very interesting technology that fit perfectly with our philosophy of service excellence. After almost four years we have not had any issues with the equipment, in fact we have totally forgotten about incidents”, states Juan Miguel Fornas forcefully.

Without lamp changes or filter cleaning, the stress for teachers and students disappears. The 2012 opening of the new IQS site that accommodates the IQS School of Management and IQS Executive programs, was the perfect excuse for Juan Miguel Fornas together with audio-visual product distribution and installation company Comensa to once again opt for CASIO. Laser and LED technology is a real alternative to mercury lamps that will be abolished in 2020 under the treaty signed by the WHO and ratified by 92 countries including Spain.
CASIO ECO-FRIENDLY PROJECTORS HAVE REMOVED CONTAMINATING MERCURY LAMPS FOREVER. BESIDES THE SAVINGS FROM NOT HAVING TO CHANGE THE LAMP DURING THE ENTIRE USEFUL LIFE OF THE PROJECTOR, 20,000 HOURS, YOU MUST ADD THE SAVINGS IN EXPENSE OF REPLACEMENT, DISASSEMBLING, AND ASSEMBLING OPERATIONS, ESPECIALLY WHEN CEILING MOUNTED
