Seoul Semiconductor's LED SunLike Improves Eye Health and Sleep Quality, According to Clinical Study
Jul 12, 2018

ANSAN, South Korea--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Seoul Semiconductor Co., Ltd. (KOSDAQ 046890), a global market leader in LED (light emitting diode) design and manufacturing, announced that a research has shown that its “SunLike” is an optimized LED for human centric lighting that improves eye health and sleep quality.

The research team of Biomedical Information Laboratory, Seoul National University College of Medicine in Korea, has reported that using SunLike based lighting, the eye discomfort is significantly reduced and the sleep quality is improved compared to conventional LED lighting users.

The researchers conducted experiments on adults including graduate students at Seoul National University, who spend a lot of time studying at their desk indoors. Each participant was instructed to use SunLike desk lamp and conventional LED lamp for 3 hours before bedtime. The team conducted a questionnaire and analyzed the vital signs of participants recorded during sleep.

Subjective evaluation through questionnaires showed a significant decrease in eye fatigue and a marked improvement in sleep quality. The researchers found that improvement of the feeling of not refreshing after a sleep in the following morning was statistically significant.

As a result of analyzing the measured vital sign, the time it takes to fall asleep is 23% faster and the time to break during sleep was also improved by 43%. Therefore, the research team found that sleep efficiency as an indicator of sleep was significantly improved from 88% to 94%.

“We conclude that these effects are due to the stabilization of the autonomic nervous system rhythm, which is manifested by inactivation of sympathetic nerve and activity of parasympathetic nerve by SunLike based lighting,” said the research team of SNU. “Light affects people’s circadian rhythm. In order to improve biorhythm, we can adjust the light according to time zone and use a light source close to sunlight,” said the research team of SNU.

SunLike is an advanced light source that combines the latest optical and compound semiconductor technology of Seoul Semiconductor and *TRI-R technology, a sunlight spectrum reproduction technology, that is a registered trademark by the Toshiba Materials Co., Ltd. It that lowers blue light peak similar to sunlight spectrum contributes to maintaining a stable human circadian rhythms and enhancing the color clarity of objects.

In addition, as a result of analyzing the blue light emitted by the LED ‘SunLike’, it received Eye Safety Certification for level RG-1, the highest level of safety, from Korea Testing & Research Institute last November. This is the level given to a safe light source without any photobiological hazards.

“Since its launch on June 29th, last year in Frankfurt, Germany, with Toshiba Materials Co., Ltd., SunLike has being supplied to global customers in US, Europe, China and Japan that manufacture home lightings, smart desk stands and lamps. It is also currently working on more than 200 projects for SunLike with customers, suppliers and researchers,” said Minsoo Son, marketing vice president of Seoul Semiconductor. “We will prove SunLike is the innovative LED which adds value for human centric lighting by demonstrating differentiated quality and competitiveness to exceed customers’ expectations.”

*TRI-R, supported by Toshiba Materials, finds in the definition “The light closest to the sun for human well-being” as its original concept. The sun light spectrum is developed by the same company and can be reproduced by a white LED light source technology.

ISH Shanghai & CIHE returns with an elevated sourcing experience for the East and Central China market
Jul 12, 2018

SHANGHAI --( ASIA TODAY )-- ISH Shanghai & CIHE, the sister show of ISH China & CIHE in Beijing, will return to Shanghai New International Expo Centre from 3 – 5 September 2018 as the show cements its position as the most influential HVAC and home comfort exhibition in East and Central China.

As the demand for customised heating solutions, intelligent and comfortable households in East and Central China continues to soar, industry professionals are gearing up for another edition of ISH Shanghai & CIHE – Shanghai International Trade Fair for Heating, Ventilation, Air-Conditioning & Home Comfort System. The show will be concurrently held with Shanghai Intelligent Building Technology, Shanghai Smart Home Technology, Shanghai International Lighting Fair and Parking China to form a one-stop sourcing channel. Together, these five building technology fairs are expected to host over 600 exhibitors across 46,000 sqm of exhibition space and attract 60,000 visitors from around the world.

An increasing number of severe cold winter days during the year has fuelled the heating market in East and Central China. While centralised heating systems are predominant in the north of China, households in East and Central China require a different set of solutions. ISH Shanghai & CIHE enables fairgoers to capture lucrative opportunities generated by recent coal-to-clean energy policies and the growing popularity of fully-furnished deluxe apartments. Those, in fact, require individual household-based heating systems. These changes in the market will be seen through a comprehensive selection of advanced home comfort systems at the fair which also includes fresh air, water and air purification and smart products.

This comprehensive range of products ensures the fair is a focal point for a wide range of buyers. This includes manufacturers, distributors, installation companies, design and decoration companies, property developers, designers and end-users who are all looking to explore the latest products as well as industry trends.

Debut Premium Area elevates sourcing experience To accommodate the diversified needs of the market in East and Central China, the Premium Area will debut at this year’s fair to showcase outstanding technologies and products under the themes of Technology, Quality, Design and Technical Skills. Renowned domestic and overseas brands dedicated to comfortable home products and technologies will offer a variety of sourcing options. The different themes allow visitors to efficiently navigate the various exhibits and discover design patents, quality and design awards, innovative system designs, and advanced skills involved in the manufacturing or installation process.

The European Pavilion will return to the 2018 edition to capitalise on the rapid development of the HVAC market in East and Central China. Renowned HVAC brands from Germany, Italy and the UK will showcase top-of-the-range European heating products and technologies. Last year, 20 top industry players from Europe featured at the pavilion and a strong line-up is expected again this year. Companies that have already confirmed their participation include AeroFlow, Afriso, Bampi, Dephina, KANE, Radius and WKL.

ISH Shanghai & CIHE is headed by the biennial ISH event in Frankfurt, Germany, which is the world’s leading trade fair for the Bathroom Experience, Building, Energy, Air-Conditioning Technology and Renewable Energies. The mother event will take place from 11 – 15 March 2019 (Monday to Friday).

Furthermore, the next edition of ISH India powered by IPA will run from 28 February – 2 March 2019 at Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai. Another ISH event in China, ISH China & CIHE will be held from 6 – 8 May 2019 at the New China International Exhibition Center.

11, July 2018 --( ASIA TODAY )-- Vietnam Electricity (EVN) and its subsidiary, Southern Power Corporation (SPC) have received Asian Utility Week’s Best Digital Transformation award for the roll-out of Landis+Gyr’s Meter Data Management System (MDMS), a project that has transformed energy data management for the entire nation of Vietnam.

Announced in Bangkok, Thailand at Asian Utility Week 2018, the award recognises the most innovative digital project and solution across digital metering, business intelligence and/or Internet of Things (IoT) platforms that have transformed utilities.

Landis+Gyr was selected by EVN just over two years ago to build and deploy a central repository for meter data across all five subsidiary corporations under its control, which represents the entire electricity system of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. Allowing data to be processed quickly and efficiently for such applications as billing and outage management, the MDMS brings together an extremely large number of disparate head end and back-end systems, at a scale unique for global deployments.

Southern Power Corporation (EVNSPC) serves the second largest number of provinces and customers in Vietnam and proved a worthy example for the award. EVNSPC’s meter data management system processes data from one million meters, making it the largest in Vietnam to date, with 20 million load profile reads and 250 million instantaneous reads being recorded each day.

EVNSPC set out to leverage the capabilities of the meter data management system to increase productivity, improve the quality of its customer service and decrease operational costs.

Jamal Cheema, Vice President of Landis+Gyr SEA said, “In the face of rapid transformation as traditional power networks become digitalised, this partnership will provide a competitive edge through increased efficiencies within the business.”

“This project demonstrates how a meter data management system can provide the foundation for two-way communications and the efficient, real-time management of data so that timely and pro-active action can be taken with respect to both grid and customer management,” he added.

Trần Trọng Nghĩa, Deputy Director of Business Development Board and Head of the MDMS Implementation Team at EVNSPC, highlighted the spirit of partnership that has characterised Landis+Gyr’s work with the utility, “The deployment team for the MDM system, as well as Landis +Gyr, were enthusiastic, cooperative...especially when designing the system, they sent specialists with the appropriate capabilities and knowledge about the Vietnam electricity industry to expedite the process and resolve any issues we might have had. They were also generally very receptive to our suggestions.”

EVNSPC plans to build on existing capabilities and use the meter data management system to create a centralised resource that is not just for billing data, but back-end applications such as customer service, load forecast and load research systems.

Aluminium China 2018 showcases Asia's thriving aluminium industry despite heavy US tariffs
Jun 28, 2018

SHANGHAI, June 28, 2018 --( ASIA TODAY )--- In the face of the US tariff storm, the Aluminium China 2018 exhibition and conference in Shanghai from July 11 to 13, will provide China's aluminium industry with its first global platform since the announcement to expand business into other world markets.

dmg’s New Component & Materials Event FIM to Offer the Ultimate Design Toolkit
Jun 27, 2018

• FIM will offer the materials, fittings and technologies required to build or upholster any piece of furniture
• Organised by team behind INDEX, Big 5 and the Hotel Show, FIM seeks to help manufacturers and design buyers
• September’s Dubai event will present a shop-window of base materials and parts, rather than finished products

27/06/18 – DUBAI --( ASIA TODAY )-- UAE: dmg events – the team behind INDEX, the Big 5 and the Hotel Show Dubai – have announced a brand new interiors event for autumn 2018, aimed at offering Middle East interior design buyers and manufacturers direct access to a massive pool of specialist material and component suppliers.
Announced for September, FIM will seek to account for the needs of those specialising in every stage of the furniture manufacture and supply chain by showcasing all the materials, fittings and technology required to bring any interiors product from concept to reality.

In what is a first of its kind in the region, the three-day event will present a shop-window of base materials and parts, rather than finished products. By gathering hundreds of international suppliers, the show will build a unique one-stop shop for interior professionals looking to obtain every fabric, crafting component or digital solution required to advance their manufacturing process.

Event manager Alaa Al Ush is behind the FIM concept. He explained: “The furniture market has, over the last decade, grown exponentially across the UAE and the Gulf region. A strong economy, considerable governmental support and a young population base, coupled with other secondary factors – centrally large-scale developments in infrastructural, economical, industrial and educational projects – have created a strong platform for the industry to grow to new horizons. Domestic furniture manufacturers are also expanding their capacity to fulfil premium household furniture demand, thus driving the overall furniture market further forward.

“In our eyes, a furniture industry of that size and influence should be able to cater to itself; manufacturers shouldn’t be forced to travel abroad to get a hold of the resources they need. It makes sense to bring the world of components, materials, fixtures and fittings to them, streamlining their procurement process, and that’s exactly what FIM will do.”

The new event – which is currently recruiting exhibitors – will unite local furniture-makers, interior designers and architects with international providers of materials, tools and components who are looking to expand their reach across the Gulf.

According to a 2017 market report by analysts Ventures Middle East – citing the United Nations Commodity Trade Database – the annual export value of furniture and parts thereof out of the region is estimated to be worth AED 1.5billion (US$400million) each year. Of that, the UAE accounted for roughly AED 750million (US$200million), half the total figure.

It is that mammoth industry that FIM seeks to benefit, promoting the skill and value of the experts fuelling that booming market.

Firms already confirmed for the debut show include Hafele GmbH & Co, who have been based across the Middle East and wider afield since 1923. Renowned as one of the world’s leading providers of technical hardware solutions for doors and furniture, Hafele will be using FIM to launch their new Loox LED lighting system and furniture doors capable of pivoting, folding and sliding, brought to the market by Hawa Concepta.

Also exhibiting is Italian aluminium manipulators Plamac Spa, who alter the metal to fit the needs of furniture designers and architects. They will be one of nearly a dozen Italian companies coming to what promises to be the show’s most active country pavilion, where they will be joined by brands including L&S, Sedil Curvi, Seven Italia and Viterie.

Other international pavilions booked for the show include Germany, France, Turkey and China.

Event manager Al Ush added: “From wood, fabric and materials, to fittings, structural parts, 3D printing and upholstery tools, the show will bring manufacturing to life in the most organic way.

“We see a real need for an event where the thousands of creative minds behind our growing region’s vast catalogue of new build and refurbishment projects can source from one place alone every piece of any furnishing product they are trying to bring to life. And that’s what FIM will be.”

Co-located alongside The Hotel Show, the Leisure Show and INDEX, FIM will take place at the Dubai World Trade Centre, September 16-18, 2018. To find out more or to enquire about exhibiting, visit

Eco Expo Asia returns for another year with a fresh new theme "Waste Less Save More for a Low-carbon Future"
Jun 12, 2018

The 13th edition of the show, to be held in Hong Kong from 25 ‒ 28 October 2018, is jointly organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd and the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), and co-organised by the Environment Bureau of the Government of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. The 2017 edition of the show saw more than 14,000 visitors attend from over 100 countries and regions, while the fair gathered 335 exhibitors from 18 countries and regions, including 16 overseas and local pavilions and group participations.

The Environment Bureau will roll out its Municipal Solid Waste Charging Scheme in 2019 in order to tackle Hong Kong’s waste generation and improve its reduction and management. To echo with this drive for better waste management, Eco Expo Asia has adopted a new show theme ‒ “Waste Less Save More for a Low-carbon Future”. By aligning the fair in this way, the organisers hope to increase awareness of current pressing environmental issues and also to facilitate the exchange of technology and solutions from around the world.

As a part of waste management, recycling has recently become a much more acute issue. Due to new measures implemented this year in reforming the import of recyclables in the Chinese mainland, Hong Kong like many other countries and regions requires new strategies. In an effort to stimulate the recycling industry, more than USD2.5 million has been earmarked under the Recycling Fund to encourage further development in the local recycling sector.

Additionally, the Chinese mainland government has announced a raft of new measures to tackle environmental issues including the establishment of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment to regulate waste management. One example of the need for new solutions can be seen in the recent explosion in online food delivery services in the country which generates a staggering 60 million plastic cartons of waste every day. The scale of such environmental challenges as well as new initiatives being announced demonstrates the wealth of investment opportunities in Hong Kong and the wider region.

International pavilions return ushering new innovations and global solutions

Hong Kong, well-known for its international standing and status as a global hub, continues to attract leading global companies who wish to do business in Asia. Eco Expo Asia’s international pavilions and group participations remain key to upholding the fair’s international outlook.

The Canada pavilion will join the show for the fourth consecutive year. Organised by the Ontario Ministry of International Trade and the Consulate General of Canada in Hong Kong, the pavilion will display the latest solutions from Canada with a strong focus on the water and waste sectors.

Providing a trusted and reliable platform for businesses, Mr Jonathan Gur, President and CEO, ION Enterprises, spoke during last year's show about why he continues to exhibit at Eco Expo Asia: “I have had quality professionals come and visit me who understand the systems I am exhibiting straight away. Tradeshows can be worthwhile if you have the right type of visitors attending and you are under the right platform. Hong Kong is the gateway to Asia and I have enjoyed business meetings already with businesses from the region. I will be here for sure next year.”

Echoing with efforts to increase economic integration with the Greater Bay Area, a number of Chinese pavilions from the region are also set to join the fair once again.

Making Hong Kong a low-carbon city

For the first time at the show the Environmental Protection Department will occupy a joint stand with other Hong Kong government departments. In what’s set to be the largest exhibit at the fair and in an effort to take the lead and demonstrate the government’s commitment to making Hong Kong a low-carbon city, the departments will showcase environmental protection projects being undertaken as well as those currently in the pipeline.

Some of the biggest names in the environmental protection business from Hong Kong will also be present at the show. Those leading the way include Baguio Green Group Ltd, China Energy Conservation and Environmental Protection (Hong Kong) Investment Co Ltd and SUEZ NWS Ltd.

As a leading trade fair in Asia for environmental protection, a wide range of environmental product categories will be featured at the show, including Green Buildings and Energy Efficiency, Green Transportation, and Water Treatment and Quality Management. The Startup Zone will also return after its successful debut last year. Its aim is to encourage green startups to explore more business opportunities and connect with investors at the show.

Eco Expo Asia will be held from 25 - 28 October 2018 at AsiaWorld-Expo. For more information, please email or, or visit
