Sustainable development


ASK has been aware of environmental challenges since its creation and has built a policy to reflect this. The technology used on all manufacturing sites largely conforms to this policy.
ASK eco-friendly manufacturing process

An eco-friendly manufacturing process

Silkscreen printed antennas need only a small amount of raw material unlike etching. In the ASK process, 99% of materials are used for the antenna.

• The ASK process does not use chemical engraving unlike copper etching and the company does not use corrosive materials for the antenna.
• Since material consumption is optimized, the electrical consumption is also optimized.
• C.ticket®, ASK's contactless paper ticket, is the most eco-friendly ticket on the market, an essential feature for a product sold by the thousands of millions. The C.ticket is manufactured with FSC certified paper.
ASK recycling policy
