ECO™ by Stora Enso

ECO. Unique and sustainable RFID Tag Technology.

Natural. Clean. And hi-tech.

The new sustainable ECO RFID Tag Technology is made for companies committed to environmental values. ECO RTT allows printing of an RFID label to a renewable paper, without plastic layers and harmful chemicals. Besides ecology, ECO stands for economy - it allows high volumes and high quality while being cost neutral.

RFID technology

Unique technology

Stora Enso’s proprietary, patented ECO technology gives you an innovative and feasible alternative to traditional inlay manufacturing processes. It is a simple, high-speed and cost-efficient method.

All this is enabled with an additive, dry antenna manufacturing process, high-speed IC assembly and simplified label converting machine requiring fewer material layers.

rfid tag description

Unique inlayless RFID label structure

ECO uses a sustainable fibre-based paper substrate and low-cost conductor that offers higher conductivity.

During conversion, the antenna paper substrate acts as a face material, enabling you to eliminate an extra face laminate layer.

RFID machine

Competitive cost

ECO RFID tags are manufactured using an additive technology that requires only a small footprint. This means that you can locate all processes under one roof and compress the supply chain.

Simplified, high-capacity machinery reduces production costs. And a thin, inlay-less label structure lowers material and shipping costs.

Our tag design portfolio

Stora Enso has a broad selection of own RFID tag designs. In addition to models based on the ECO technology, we also produce traditional RFID tags suited for specific conditions.

Plastic waste is harming our planet.

We need to replace plastic with renewable materials such as paper, carton, cardboard and other wood-based solutions if we’re going to meet the demands for a greener planet.
