Wrooom! The RFID takes over race tracks and so does the RFID Friday Blog. A Lunch & Learn event with intensive training held in Madrid with Bluestar and SATO. Nordic ID takes carbon footprint calculator into use. RFID in apparel industry is still a hot potato!
The search for new and interesting RFID applications have led
the Nordic ID crew around a race track. The Nürnburgring in Germany has taken active RFID
in use for speed noise control. The automated detection of the
noise level significantly reduced the administrative burden and
enabled real time control and situation response. Wow! One could
have never even imagined..
Nordic ID held a Lunch & Learn
event with Bluestar Southern Europe in Madrid
Thuesday the 28th of June Nordic ID hosted a Lunch & Learn
Session together with our European distributor BlueStar and SATO
(supplier of print and label solutions) at the El jardín de la
leyenda Restaurantin Madrid.
During the session presentation and workshop of Nordic ID handheld
terminals and mobile computers was held. Both RFID and barcoding
devices were covered.
It was attended by partners/resellers from BlueStar who are in the
Auto-ID & RFID business. It was a great opportunity to exchange
information and discuss about the industry with these professionals
in the industry!
We would like to thank all the attendees, BlueStar and
SATO to make this event such a success!

Nordic ID has taken a carbon
footprint calculator in use
The calculator was developed together with TechVilla.
Carbon footprint calculation includes the product's life cycle from
raw material extraction to the delivery of the final product to
retailers. The following components have been included in the
carbon footprint analysis:
- Raw material extraction
- Manufacture of components
- Component assembly
- Final product assembly process
- Finished product delivery
Calculation is an estimate of products greenhouse gas emissions
and it is presented in carbon dioxide equivalents (CO2e).
Carbon footprint calculation does not represent the absolute
truth of the product life cycle as the total emissions, but gives
an indicative estimate of calculation in a carbon footprint.
Calculation provides useful information about the environmental
impact of different materials, logistics chain and assembly
efficiency. This information is a valuable tool in improving
environmental efficiency of the product design and manufacturing
This calculation has applied international product-specific
carbon footprint standard PAS2050. Emission factors have been
derived from international life-cycle databases (Ecoinvent, Bath
ICE, Best Foot Forward, VTT and IEA). More information (in Finnish).
Eco-friendliness is a matter close to the Nordic ID heart. The
development of RFID products to improve supply chain efficiency
automatically leads to cleaner and safer environment. Nordic ID is
also a member of the Supply Chain Carbon Council.
Jessica Säilä and Carl Michener produced an article on the data
collection and identification needs through RFID or barcoding
technology. The article covers everything from no-tech to
high-tech. Flip to pages 30 - 31 in the Logistics Business IT
Magazine to read this interesting text.
