Advanced nanocarbon materials for modern digital supply chain efficiency

The digital transformation of supply chains has become an important element in improving the resilience and traceability of physical goods, says Terrance Barkan of the Graphene Council. He reports that AIPIA member Advanced Material Development (AMD) is innovating a range of highly conductive nanocarbon-based inks to provide compostable alternatives to traditional metal-based UHF RFID technologies used in supply chains.

The InnovateUK-funded consortium, SecQuAL, is focused on the food sector and how RFID systems can ensure food traceability and quality. AMD has produced a series of digital and intelligent packaging demonstrators highlighting consumer interactivity and backend material resource planning (MRP) functionality, simulating production, distribution and sales environments through combinations of QR codes, barcodes and UHF RFID...
