Stora Enso recyclable RFID ECO tags offer intelligent packaging

Sweden’s Stora Enso has launched a new sustainable RFID tag technology called ECO designed for intelligent packaging applications in supply chain, retail and e-commerce. The paper-based RFID tags provide a plastic-free, recyclable solution for packaging authentication, says the company.

Intelligent Packaging by Stora Enso develops and delivers RFID technology which allows packaged products to be automatically tracked, traced and tamper-proofed throughout the entire supply chain. The tags can be produced on a 100% fibrebased paper label, rather than traditional plastic tags, resulting in a lower carbon footprint for sustainability conscious B2B and B2C companies.

The ECO tag can be recycled together with paper and board materials. Moreover, it offers high conductivity at a lower cost compared with graphene or silver-printed antennas.
