Sharp opens energy efficient 10th gen. LCD plant
Oct 7, 2009 Sharp Corp. has started operations at its new Sharp Display Products Corp. 10th-generation (10th-Gen.) LCD panel plant in Sakai City, Japan.
The new complex employs resource-saving features such as waste management and water recycling systems, 100,000 indoor and outdoor LED lights, and solar panels on all factory roofs to generate 18 MW of electricity for the complex.
The facility will process motherglass panels 60 percent larger than the sheets used in Sharp's 8th generation LCD plant to produce energy-saving panels of 40 inches and larger. Initial capacity is expected to be 36,000 substrates a month, gradually increasing to production capacity of 72,000. A part of the facility dedicated to thin-film solar cell production is scheduled to open by March 2010.
