EcoSIM - eco-friendly SIM card unveiled by Oberthur Technologies
Oberthur Technologies has announced the successful deployment of EcoSIM - the first patented eco-friendly SIM card in the market. Following the soft launch earlier this year, over 10 million cards were delivered to mobile network operators worldwide. This new SIM card is half the size of a classic SIM and reduces the amount of plastics used by 50 percent. The carbon-dioxide generated per card is reduced from 16g to 8g. EcoSIM not only reduces plastics but reduces the carbon footprint for transport and overall waste through environmentally friendly packaging using the recycled paper and PEFC and FSC certified materials.

Until now, SIM cards were produced on sheets of plastic using a credit card size format. The patented process allows for the manufacturing of two SIM cards on a single sheet of plastic instead of one. EcoSIM and the full range of environmentally friendly packaging materials will be showcased at the Oberthur Technologies stand 3G001 at the CARTES & Identification exhibition from November 17 - 19th in Paris.
