Teijin to particpate in 'Offshore Arabia 2009' with eco-friendly products

Jan '09
The Teijin Group announced today that it will participate in Offshore Arabia 2009, which will be held at the Dubai International Convention Center in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, from January 11 to January 13. Teijin will partake in the exhibition for the first time, aiming to support its expansion of environmental business in the Middle East.

Offshore Arabia 2009 is an international conference and exhibition that promotes sustainable energy and environmental protection. It is organized by the Regional Clean Sea Organization (RECSO), an environmental organization that works to protect the Gulf environment, and is held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the vice president & prime minister of the UAE and ruler of Dubai.

Teijin, the only exhibitor from Japan, will showcase the following environmentally friendly products:
- Abaya (women's Arabic garment) and thobe (men's Arabic garment), both made of Teijin's recycled polyester fiber produced from used polyester products
- SUPER EXTAR(r), Teijin's environmentally friendly, highly flame-resistant polyester material containing a non-halogen, flameproof agent
- ELK(r), Teijin's polyester elastic fibrous material used as an alternative to traditional foamed polyurethane

Teijin also will introduce various environmental initiatives, such as ECO CIRCLETM, a closed-loop system for recycling used polyester products, and water-processing technology.

About ECO CIRCLETM:
Developed by Teijin, ECO CIRCLE is a closed-loop recycling system for used polyester products. The system employs the world's first technology for chemical recycling, which chemically decomposes polyester for conversion into new polyester raw materials that offer purity comparable to those derived from petroleum.

Teijin cooperates with over 100 registered apparel and sportswear manufacturers worldwide for the development and manufacture of products made from recyclable materials, as well as to collect and recycle these products at the end of their useful lives.

Compared to developing polyester materials from petroleum, this repeatable recycling system reduces energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 80% each. About
