A balance optimization method has been employed to determine the quantity of toxic emissions particularly in emissions to air, fresh water, sea water and industrial soil, in production process of polymer and paper based RFID tags. We have developed a low profile antenna design for passive UHF RFID tags using both polymer and paper substrate with copper and aluminum for the antenna trace. Comparative analysis of toxic emissions during production process of polymer and paper based RFID antennas have been discussed in this paper. Our results show that paper based RFID antennas yield lower organic emissions to the environment while considerably higher inorganic emissions to the air. The results also depict that air is highly affected with the toxic emissions compared to fresh water, sea water and industrial soil.
