How Can a Plastic Bag for Industrial Usage Be Recycled if It Contains an RFID Tag?

Posted By RFID Journal, 10.10.2014

Is there a way to still recycle it?

There a variety of ways in which this could be accomplished. The RFID transponder could be affixed to whatever is used to seal the bag. Then, when the bag is empty and the seal is thrown away, the bag could be recycled. Another option might be to use a tag with a printed antenna. There are tags that use silver ink to print an antenna, and these would not have an impact on a recycling machine, but you would need to check if regulations within your country permit the use of such inks.
