Bridgestone Corporation is pleased to announce that it will exhibit products for the first time at The 4th Eco-Products International Fair 2008 (EPIF 2008), which will be held for four days in Hanoi, Vietnam from March 1 through March 4, 2008.

EPIF is one of the largest environmental exhibitions in the Asia region. This will be the fourth such exhibition, with the first three held in Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore, beginning in 2004. The Bridgestone Group continually strives to strengthen its environmental management and minimize its environmental footprint, all aimed at the goal of improving the world in which we all live. At EPIF 2008, Bridgestone will showcase its environmental policy and projects related to environment and conservation.

Examples of items that Bridgestone will display will include: the “ECOPIA” tire, an environmental-friendly tire with low rolling resistance, a feature that can contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions; and efforts to conserve resources, including retreading*1 and runflat technologies. In fields other than tires, Bridgestone will exhibit electronic paper displays that retain images after the electrical power has been turned off, and “EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) film”*2, which is used as an adhesive for solar modules. Also, Bridgestone's environmental enhancements in its production processes will be displayed, including its “Co-generation system”*3 that is being installed at its tire plants.
