Giesecke&Devrient presented at the Global Currency Forum in Tarragona, which took place this week, its “Green banknote” substrate, which is intended to provide substantial reduction of CO2 emissions during its life cycle.
The material uses inks which are based on vegetal instead of mineral oils. as least plastic as possible, and vegetal fibers from certified sources. This allows a 63% reduction of CO2 with respect to conventional fibers.
The coat of PET used to protect the notes from dirt is thinner that the one previously used, allowing for additional reductions.
