An important panel discussion. AIPIA community will be asked to move this development forward.All along the value chain data can provide critical insights about your product, its journey and how consumers react to it. Smart Packaging opens a new dimension to the collection and delivery of data which can then be used to enable New Product Development, Provenance, Authentication, Supply Chain Security and Consumer Engagement. Data flows two ways, outwards to your suppliers, retailers and customers and internally to improve production, distribution and marketing. So being able to interpret this stream of data is vital. All stakeholders in the supply chain need to change their way of thinking about how to handle data, to ensure it is shared across all parts of the business.

At the AIPIA Congress you will learn how to harness the power of this data from experts in the Internet of Things/Internet of Packaging Thanks to Smart Packaging it has never been easier to collect data about CPGs and the people who buy them. This data flows both ways, outwards to suppliers, retailers and customers but also internally, to improve, NPD, production, distribution and marketing. So using these data effectively is a vital business function. However this means many companies need to change the way they share data across their business.

Come and listen to experts in the Internet of Things/Internet of Packaging and Digital Twins at the AIPIA World Congress and learn how to harness the power of data for your business.

What does the packaging market need to enable large scale recycling? A sustainable, reliable, simple and cheap technology for sorting is key to recycling. This enables high-value fractions based on criteria like: Food/Non-food, single-/multilayer, toxic/non-toxic, and more.

This new sorting technology delivers a profit to every stake-holder in the value-chain. Sustainability and simplicity imply: no need for extra ink for print-purposes, efficient embedding of sorting-key dots into plastics and easy reading with limited computer power. Using straight-forward, single-purpose digital watermark technology, all value-chain participants can harvest the added value coming from fast-growing market demand for recycled materials.



Pichaya Pattanasattayavong

Thermoresponsive Materials Enabling Battery-Free, NFC/RFID Temperature-Monitoring Labels

Speaker: Pichaya Pattanasattayavong | Professor, Vidyasirimedhi Institute of Science and Technology

Location: Presentation Area II

Smart labels that can detect a critical temperature threshold are in demand for tracking temperature-sensitive goods in modern logistics. The visual temperature indicators are widely used, but they require manual inspection of individual tags. In contrast, RF-based devices require a power supply (data loggers), thus not suitable for item-level tracking. Some temperature-sensing passive NFC/RFID tags are available; however, they can only report the temperature when communicating with an RF interrogator. Our team has developed a new sensor component based on thermoresponsive materials that can be integrated with conventional passive NFC/RFID labels.

The sensor operates continuously based on the physical reactions of the thermoresponsive materials, eliminating the need of an external power source. Crucially, the status of the sensor is specifically engineered to be irreversible: once a temperature threshold is exceeded, both the visual appearance (color) and the electrical state of the sensor are irreversibly changed. Essentially, this allows the sensor to store 1-bit memory of the thermal history (within limit vs limit exceeded) and can output both visual and digital indicating signals. The sensor’s properties enable the realization of smart temperature-monitoring, battery-less labels for item-level tracking of temperature-sensitive goods such as pharmaceutical and cosmetic products.

Panel Discussion: How Digital Product Passports and Traceability Technology Power Sustainable Value Chains

Speaker: Kim Albertsen | Manager Traceability Lead Nordics Industry X, Accenture

Speaker: Jan Merckx | Sustainability Lead, GS1 Netherlands

Speaker: Per Christian Myklebost | CPO, Kezzler

Speaker: Johan Borg | CTO, Kezzler

Moderator: John Beerens | CSO, Kezzler

Location: Presentation Area I/Main Stage

Building sustainable value chains require end-to-end visibility across the supply chain. How can this transparency be achieved and shared? Traceability technology underpins this visibility and insight – enabling the circular economy, meeting consumer demands, and achieving regulatory compliance.

An example of the regulatory shift is the European Union’s digital product passport (DPP) initiative. Designed to support sustainability and circular goals, DPPs will be required to sell products in specific categories (starting with apparel and textiles) within the European Union.

In this panel discussion, you will learn more about who DPPs will affect in the future, the critical elements to consider when choosing a traceability platform, the importance of interoperability and technology standards, and the benefits of end-to-end traceability beyond regulatory compliance in creating sustainable value chains.



David Geisser

Use of Blockchain with NFC Technology to Protect Brands from Counterfeited Products and Enhance Customer Experience

Speaker: David Geisser | Founder & CEO, collectID AG

Location: Presentation Area II

Almost 2 trillion dollars worth of products are counterfeited every year, generating not only monetary losses but also reputational damage for brands. Additionally, brands often lack important first-party data about their customer and target group, since many products are sold via a retailer. Storytelling and sharing emotions became more difficult in times when online shopping increased, and a global pandemic thwarted customers from shopping in-store. With the introduction of digital worlds like the Metaverse, many brands want to tap into this market opportunity but often do not know where to start or how to participate. Finally, there is a crucial missing link between the physical product and the digital landscape we are surrounded by.

collectID solves these problems by combining encrypted, smartphone-ready NFC tags with secure, immutable NFTs (non-fungible tokens) to guarantee – 100% – a product’s authenticity with just a single tap on the smartphone. Each product is equipped with a unique and encrypted NFC tag. This tag and its unique identity are then assigned to its owner, tokenized, and stored on the blockchain, providing a customer-centric end-to-end solution for brands, products, and customers. With our technology, we reduce the scalability and the financial incentive to produce counterfeits and allow brands to operate fully transparently by storing information on the blockchain. By combining hardware and software, we create a unique communication channel for brands, allowing for new types of storytelling and one-of-a-kind “phygital” user experiences.
