SATO increases production capability for CO2 reducing label ECONANO
SATO, producer of barcode printing, labeling, and EPC/RFID solutions has announced plans to increase production of its unique ECONANO labels, said to be the world’s first label series able to reduce CO2 emissions released at the point of incineration.
By“SATO’s mission has always been to contribute to society through its main business,” said Etsuo Fujii, President of SATO Corporation. “Increasing our production capabilities for ECONANO in this way demonstrates that we are increasingly trying to make this contribution through environmentally-focused products and solutions. As demand for ECONANO labels increases, it is our sincere hope that we will one day produce 100% of our label products as ECONANO labels.”
ACTiiEVe Corporation, 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 starting February 2013.The new factory began the manufacture of the special CO2 absorbent utilized in the production of ECONANO on February 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 much higher volume of ECONANO labels, with up to 10% of its total label production as ECONANO® labels.
