New Solutions Implemented with Alternative Resources and Based on Renewable Energies!
Passive RFID specialist Securitag Assembly Group (SAG) sets new goals and is transforming itself towards greater sustainability and climate neutrality. In concrete terms, this means that production processes will be supplied with renewable energies, alternative and environmentally friendly materials will be used, and new RFID solutions will be developed that strengthen the circular economy.
SAG Production and Supply Chain Converted for Greater Sustainability
SAG is already increasingly obtaining the energy required for production from solar power. In addition, renewable resources are used for the production of the passive RFID tags. When the new site goes into operation in December 2022, production will already be largely sustainable, says Jasmine Shih, Marketing Director, SAG:
"The construction of the new site doubles the production capacity for sustainably manufactured RFID tags. A large portion of production is covered by the use of renewable resources and their environmental impact is effectively measured, controlled and minimized. In addition, SAG proactively supports sustainable practices in the supply chain."
RFID Expertise for Customized, Sustainable and Innovative Solutions
And what are SAG's core competencies? The innovative development work with expertise in materials science and mechanical innovation to identify customer pain points. The custom design of new products and solutions including antenna customization from prototype development to under-one-roof manufacturing techniques. Here, too, the focus is on innovative solutions for sustainable applications.
Currently, SAG is focusing on the development of RFID Plus One applications – combining RFID and sensor technology in one tag, for example for temperature monitoring. "The newly developed SAG Temp Tracker is a temperature data logger, NFC-enabled label with app support," explains Jasmine Shih. "SAG delivers RFID innovations like these that drive the circular economy in industrial applications, for perishable goods and commodities."
RFID Plus One Successfully Implemented in the TomKat KoolPak®.
For one particular application, the RFID Plus One is already being used successfully: The TomKat KoolPak® is a cooler developed by the Australian family-owned company TomKat Line Fish.
Designed as an alternative for polystyrene with equivalent thermal performance, the TomKat KoolPak® is a solution for temperature-critical goods to revolutionize the packaging and transportation of temperature-sensitive and perishable products while protecting our environment and our future.
SAG's NFC tag is integrated in three places: the box, the lid and the insulating material. The container is 100 percent recyclable and can be tracked over the entire product lifecycle using NFC.
"A frequent feedback from customers is that SAG goes the ‘extra mile,’" Jasmine Shih points out. "This long-standing commitment to custom solution development is something that sets us apart. Going forward, SAG will stay true to this mindset and develop sustainable solutions.
