Japanese producer of barcode printing, labelling and EPC/RFID solutions Sato has launched a new series of labels that absorb and reduce CO2 released into the atmosphere during label incineration.

The ECONANO labels use nano vesicle capsule (NVC) technology to add a CO2 absorbent to the label’s adhesive, which enables users to reduce CO2 emissions at the point of incineration by approximately 20%.

By combining the technology with the company’s NONSEPA linerless label series, a 50% reduction can be achieved in CO2 emissions at the time of incineration, the company claims.

Sato has developed the label in partnership with Professor Masahiko Abe of the Tokyo University of Science and the University’s venture company, ACTIVE.

‘Reducing carbon emissions is a challenge for all businesses today,’ said Sato president Etsuo Fujii.

‘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 labelling," Fujii added.
