and cost-effectively change their card designs and offer consumers sustainable, long-lasting products.”

The CPI Card Group is already deploying Secora Pay for a range of eco-friendly plastic cards. “Using the Infineon Secora Pay solution enabled CPI to bring Second Wave, our payment card that features a core made of recovered ocean-bound plastic to market quickly. The combination of inductive coupling antennas and chips made scaling this sustainable eco-focused payment card an efficient process,” said Guy DiMaggio from CPI.

The CoM technology allows contactless RFID cards to be produced on standard equipment for contact-based cards without making new investments in specific machinery.

Market research firm ABI Research expects dual interface card shipments to reach 2.2 billion pieces in 2020 with increased use of contactless payments driven by the Covid-19 pandemic. As a result the industry is launching more ecofriendly programs such as the Greener Payments Partnership (GPP) program by MasterCard.

Secora Pay is available in volume quantities.
