More insights into Banknote Production
Sustainability at every level
G+D's Green Banknote is far more than a Hybrid ADDvance® banknote with the lowest carbon footprint: with no compromise on durability and security, a core with a green heart, the minimized use of plastic ot is a contribution to a more sustainable future and higher public acceptance for cash as a preferred means of payment.
An “ADDvancing” portfolio
In regions and countries with extreme circulation conditions, banknotes are exposed to extraordinary stresses. In response we developed banknote substrates Hybrid and the new Hybrid ADDvance®, to integrate cutting-edge security features across whole banknote series. Astrid Drexler, Product Manager for High-Security Paper, talks about the expansion of the Hybrid portfolio and how the interplay of substrates and security features can enhance efficiency across the complete cash cycle.
Telling Tajikistan’s story with high-tech design and resilience
The central bank in Tajikistan has been working with Louisenthal for over twenty years, so it’s no surprise that the bank turned to us again for its banknote upgrade. In a country where almost all transactions are carried out in cash, our Hybrid substrate was the right choice of platform.
Homage to Mandela with centenary banknotes
Nelson Mandela was the undisputed star of South Africa’s new set of notes. Issued to celebrate his 100th birthday, each denomination shows a different stage in his life. Based on Louisenthal’s Hybrid substrate, the banknotes have several security features that form part of the storytelling approach.
Substrate for all circulating conditions
Secure, durable, attractive, and easily processed by machine – that’s how banknotes should be. Requirements for bankote substrates used are similarly complex. The scalable portfolio from G+D offers proven cotton paper and a range of innovative solutions which can ideally complete a banknote series.
