PulpaTronics has developed a more sustainable approach to radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags.

PulpaTronics has designed recyclable, paper-only RFID tags – simple electronic circuits embedded in products for identification through radio signals used in item tracking and inventory management.

PulpaTronics alternative combines two novel technologies to create paper-only RFID tags that do not require an antenna or a microchip – eliminating metal mining, streamlining manufacturing processes and reducing overall environmental impact.

The resulting RFID tags are recyclable and significantly cheaper than conventional tags.

By making RFID tags more accessible, the technology helps retailers achieve their sustainability goals – while empowering customers to confidently dispose of RFID tags and make more conscious decisions.

This project has been longlisted in the sustainable design (consumer) category of Dezeen Awards 2023.
