Eco Manufacture 2009 Tokyo, Japan - (08/12/2009)

Eco Manufacture 2009 - Review


Bear Logi attended the Eco-Manufacture 2009 in Tokyo which was held from November 18-20. The exhibition featured numerous new eco products form Japan for use within factories and warehouses. In addition to manufacturers from Japan, other countries represented included China and Korea who also show-cased their latest innovative devices for reducing energy consumption and improving factory efficiency thereby reducing waste.


It was pleasing to note that many manufacturers introduced products and services that could be retrofitted to existing warehouses and factories at a reasonable cost. One example was an insulation panel that attached to the metal roof or walls via magnets. This one idea could make your warehouse or factory eminently more comfortable for your workers and importantly reduce your heating and cooling costs.


Tokyo eco products - green roof   Tokyo eco products - reflective shade cloth

Tokyo Eco - Left. Vegetated green roof  for warehouses & factories. Right. Reflective cloth style, lightweight & economical.


Other eco products include various ‘green’ walls and roofs which are attached post construction, but increasingly part of the initial design specification. Green walls and roofs are generally vegetated matter (moss, grass or creeping vines) planted in either normal soil or more commonly in a synthetic material to keep weight down.

In addition to the organic vegetated versions, a number of mesh and cloth shading mechanisms were on display that were both light weight and very economical.


All of these devices have the aim of reducing the thermal heat island effect that is typical in many dense asian cities where land is scarce and so utilizing rooftop space for vegetation becomes a necessity. In addition to being functional, these green walls and roofs are aesthetically pleasing and make great break out spaces when rooftop access is available.
