Stora Enso launches biobased RFID tag technology for intelligent packaging

In Finland, Stora Enso makes a high-tech meets eco-friend move by launching a new sustainable paper-based RFID tag technology called ECO, designed for intelligent packaging functionalities in supply chain, retail and e-commerce applications.

Intelligent Packaging by Stora Enso develops and delivers RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology, which allows the packaged product to be automatically tracked, traced and tamper-proofed throughout the entire supply chain. Stora Enso’s ECO technology enables the RFID tags to be produced on a 100% fibre-based paper label, unlike traditional plastic tags, resulting in a lower carbon footprint for sustainability conscious B2B and B2C companies.

By integrating the RFID tag with a paper label, the manufacturing process becomes more scalable and, as result, also more cost-effective – all without compromising on performance and reliability. The ECO tag can be recycled in an environmentally friendly way together with paper and board materials. Moreover, it offers high conductivity at a lower cost compared with graphene or silver printed antennas. The ECO technology is available for use in multiple ongoing projects across multiple sectors.
