Kansai Recycle Systems to Construct New TV Recycling Plant.

Tokyo, Japan, Aug 14, 2006 - (JCN) - Sharp Corporation announced on August 11 that Kansai Recycling Systems, which is comprised of seven electrical companies - Mitubishi Materials Corporation, Sanyo Electric Co., Ltd., Sony Corporation, Hitachi Compliance Group, Fujitsu general, and Mitsubishi Eelctric Co. - will build a new factory for recycling of CRTs.

CRTs are sought to be replaced by LCD TVs in 2011. Due to the prediction of disposable CRTs, the company decided to build a second factory in Mie Prefecture following the first already built in Hirakata, Osaka. The factory will have special recycling technology encompassing the whole process from taking the TV apart to refining glass to micro pieces.

The factory also uses natural energy such as solar, biomass, micro hydraulic power, and geothermal heat. Recycling of TVs has widely penetrated in the community, with 11.6 million TVs recycled in 2005 which is up 104% compared to the previous year.
