In this work end-of-life (EOL) analysis of polymer and paper based radio frequency devices have been carried out. Polymer and paper based RFID antenna has been chosen as a radio frequency device. An attempt has been made to investigate and evaluate the environmental emissions at end-of-life-cycle stage and to explore type and quantity of emissions at their disposal. The Gabi’s balance calculation methodology has been employed to determine amount of environmental emissions at the end-of-life cycle stage. Each significant component of the antenna and their corresponding emissions has been investigated in this paper. We have also compared the corresponding emissions to air and fresh water in both the technologies i.e. incineration and land-filling at EOL stage.
