Does the Application of Passive UHF Tags to Corrugate Boxes Affect Their Recyclability?

Posted By RFID Journal, 04.01.2015

Would the presence of tag antennas pose an obstacle to recycling efforts?

The answer would depend on the type of tag being used. Certainly, a passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) tag with an etched metal antenna would need to be removed before the corrugate could be recycled. It is possible to recycle tags made with printed inks. I am unsure if antennas made from laser-cut aluminum sheets would affect the recycling of the corrugate; I don't think it would, but perhaps one of our readers can confirm this.
