SATO, a leader in bar-code printing, labeling, and EPC/RFID solutions, announced plans to increase production of its unique ECONANO® labels, which it describes as the world’s first label series able to reduce CO2 emissions released at the point of incineration.
ACTiiEVe Corp., responsible for the manufacturing of base materials used in ECONANO®, has established a new factory in Fukushima prefecture, Japan. This will enable SATO to significantly increase its ECONANO manufacturing capabilities as of February 2013.
The new factory began the manufacture of the special CO2 absorbent utilized in the production of ECONANO on Feb. 10, 2013, with the full production system to produce ECONANO labels in place by the end of the month. This new production system will enable SATO to produce a higher volume of ECONANO labels, with up to 10% of its total label production as ECONANO labels.
As demand for ECONANO labels increases, the company hopes to one day produce 100% of our label products as ECONANO labels.
