A press release from the company explains:
This pioneering technology is made possible through a special CO2 absorbent being added to the label’s adhesive. This absorbent reduces the amount of CO2 released at the point of incineration by over 20% compared with conventional labels. Moreover, by combining ECONANO technology with SATO’s NONSEPA linerless label series, it is possible to achieve an approximate 50% reduction in CO2 emissions at the time of incineration.
