CHARLOTTE, NC: SATO, a barcode printing, labeling and EPC/RFID solutions company, has released its new ECONANO series of labels. Sato said the labels absorb and reduce the CO2 released into the atmosphere when labels are incinerated. The technology is made possible through a special CO2 absorbent added to the label’s adhesive. This absorbent reduces the amount of CO2 released at the point of incineration by over 20 percent compared with conventional labels. By combining ECONANO technology with SATO’s NONSEPA linerless label series, SATO said it’s possible to achieve about a 50-percent reduction in CO2 emissions during incineration.
“Reducing carbon emissions is a challenge for all businesses today,” said Etsuo Fujii, president of SATO Corporation. “But the cutting-edge technology SATO employs in its ECONANO series labels offers our customers a helping hand in achieving their environmental targets and provides them with solutions beneficial to all levels of consumer goods product identification and supply chain labeling.”
