Keywords:Sharp green fab? LCD panel plant?

Sharp Corp. has started operations at its new LCD panel plant in Sakai City, Osaka Prefecture, Japan. Construction of the plant began in November 2007 in the Sharp Green Front Sakai manufacturing complex. Aside from the LCD plant, the complex contains a plant for thin-film solar cells.

The LCD panel plant is the first facility in the world to adopt 10th-generation glass substrates. Using Sharp's proprietary UV2A photo-alignment technology, the plant is capable of producing high-contrast, energy-efficient panels 40 inches and larger, marking a new era in large displays.

Sharp Green Front Sakai will manufacture two environmentally friendly products: energy-saving LCD panels and energy-creating solar panels. Sharp aims to make this complex an environmentally advanced production base through such environmental measures as adopting LEDs for all indoor and outdoor lighting (approximately 100,000 LED lights) throughout the complex. Also, Sharp will install solar panels on all factory roofs to provide some of the needed electricity.

Sharp Green Front Sakai is the new driving force behind Sharp's efforts to make environmentally friendly products at an environmentally conscious plant, thus helping to realize a greener society.
