Our group tour was schedule to show 5 booths from different sectors.
From feedbacks that we received, I noticed that most of our participants liked what they saw. This is my third year of participating in EcoProduct Exhibtion. Every year I had my eye on “new eco-friendly products”, such as new renewable energy products, hybrid cars, and new eco- innovation from big corporation.
(these appliances can be recycled!)
But this year, I was able to attain solid information about new recycled products. I like what I saw at future of Biomass and Bioplastic plaza.
But I was amazed about metal recycling.
Take an example from Dowa Ecosystem, I was shocked to know about precious metals are becoming limited and none of these metals can be found in Japan. Dowa has been active on recycling metals and it is matter for citizen to engage in recycling. How do we recycle metals? For example starting with electronic appliances that are sleeping in our storage room can be recycled into new metal!
Human made technology has increased in quick seconds, and at same time natural resource to fulfill its technology uses are diminishing in quick seconds.
We have to play smart for our future, use every little thing that we have used and revive its product lifecycle by recycling into new products. But we have to do it in efficient matter, not to overuse energy.
I will be looking for small to midsize company to spotlight next year. I know the interesting inventions are hidden at big exhibition hall, and it is our job to spot them and show it to our international guests!
