Where Nano Meets Green! ProMine exhibits at the Tokyo Green Innovation EXPO 2012
ProMine goes beyond the borders of Europe to present its innovative nano-particle products made from mining waste streams at the Green Innovation EXPO 2012, hosted at the Tokyo Big Sight centre from 14 to 16 November 2012. The expo is one of the key global exhibitions in introducing applications of environmental and energy technologies, green materials and advanced water management and is of interest to a broad spectrum of stakeholders, from producers to end-users.
ProMine representatives Juha Kaija, Anna Spiteri, James Baker, Bertil Grundfelt (from left to right), & Dirk De Ketelaere, grabbed this opportunity to exchange information and create new business and industrial links on a global scale by presenting the following ProMine products: Schwertmannite for colour pigments and water treatment; nano-silica for special concrete and paper coatings; and spherical rhenium and rhenium alloys for aerospace industry. These innovative products were presented as products that lead towards a reduced environmental footprint and bring fresh competitiveness to the market. Further information is provided in the brochure below.
To target specific enterprises in Japan, 260 personal invitations to visit the ProMine booth were sent out by post & e-mail (with the ProMine booth number). Good response was recorded at the booth as ProMiners were kept busy answering queries & distributing 2000 brochures alongside other promotional materials. A significant number of people visited the ProMine booth, and the organisers reported that a total of 9000 visitors visited the Expo. It is noteworthy that the Japanese market of green technologies showed a keen interest in our products. More than 80 interested persons left their business cards, mainly representatives of industrial and research organisations in Japan and worldwide. The Tokyo event provided the opportunity for the ProMine products to gain recognition on the global market for green materials on the other side of the world!
