Panasonic showcases green products in Abu Dhabi
Panasonic shows off environmentally friendly hardware at the First World Future Energy Summit
Panasonic has showcased a number of its environmentally friendly products at the First World Future Energy Summit (WFES) in Abu Dhabi this week.
The consumer electronics manufacturer presented lead free plasma TV and bamboo speakers, along with Induction Heating (IH) cooking heater and air conditioners featuring e-ion Air Purification systems, at the event, which was held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre
Many hardware manufacturers are looking to reduce the levels of potentially harmful substances that are used in their products, and to make them more energy efficient, in response to environmental concerns.
Panasonic is the world's first company to offer lead-free plasma display panels, and the company is also looking to eliminate the use of lead oxide glass which is commonly used in televisions.
The company also showed its new range of speakers that use bamboo fibres in the speaker cones. Bamboo not only gives a better sound quality than traditional speaker cone materials, but it is also much more durable, extending the life of the speaker.
Seiji Koyanagi, managing director, Panasonic Marketing Middle East, said: "Panasonic has shown a long standing commitment to environment protection, and over the years we have invested substantial resources in manufacturing products that have minimal impact on the environment. The WFES is the perfect platform for us to demonstrate our latest range of energy saving products and our series of initiatives in this regard."
