SATO unveils the world’s first carbon dioxide reducing label

SATO : 31 January, 2012  (New Product)
SATO is releasing the company's new ECONANO series of labels which absorb and reduce the CO2 that is released into the atmosphere when labels are incinerated.
The pioneering technology is made possible through a special CO2 absorbent being 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. Moreover, by combining ECONANO technology with SATO's NONSEPA linerless label series, it is possible to achieve an approximate 50 percent reduction in CO2 emissions at the time of incineration.

 

ECONANO was developed by SATO Group in collaboration with Professor Masahiko Abe of the Tokyo University of Science, and the University's venture company, ACTiiVE.

 

"Reducing carbon emissions is a challenge for all businesses today," said Etsuo Fujii, President of SATO. “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."
