Now it is its eighth year, Eco-Products International Fair (EPIF) is Asia's one of the largest annual international environmental fair. Dedicated to introducing state-of-the-art environmental technologies and environmentally conscious products, services and activities, EPIF is held at different Asian venue every year. This year was the turn of Singapore, where the theme was “One Environment, One Future: Towards a Sustainable & greener Asia.”

Toshiba's theme for the 8th Eco-Products International Fair, held at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Singapore from March 14 to 16, was “eco style for Our Life, for Our Society”. We showcased various environmentally conscious products and technologies that allow people to enjoy more convenient, affluent lifestyles, and presented Toshiba's powerful vision of the smart community. The Toshiba booth, consisting of a Life Zone and a Society Zone, featured 25 products in 14 categories.

The Life Zone was devoted to digital products, home appliances and the home energy management system (HEMS). The energy-efficient products on display included two models of the Power TV, Toshiba's major TV brand for Asia; washing machines equipped with the quiet S-DD inverter that consumes less power and water; low power consumption refrigerators; and LED lighting for the home. To publicize HEMS, which will be installed in apartment blocks in Singapore, an air-conditioner, a tablet, and other products integrated into the system were displayed together with an explanatory panel.

The Society Zone introduced social infrastructure systems, environmental systems for offices, electronic devices, and technologies & solutions. A MFP that reuses paper and air conditioners for buildings were showcased, together with panel presentations on the permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) propulsion system for railways, a CT scanner, and water treatment technology. Toshiba used ingenuity to present data storage solutions: super-high-performance enterprise solid state drives (SSD), enterprise hard disk drives (HDD), and near-line HDD. To clearly show the difference in sizes and the mechanisms, disassembled drives were displayed. A mock-up and a video clip were used together with an explanatory panel to present a modular data center requiring minimal air-conditioning equipment and space.

A panel presentation was devoted to Toshiba's powerful vision of the smart community and also introduced a selection of the smart community projects that we are participating in around the world.
