TOKYO -- October 7, 2013

Sumitomo Electric Industries, Ltd. (TOKYO:5802)(ISIN:JP3407400005) will
exhibit at 4th International Greentech & Eco Products Exhibition & Conference
Malaysia (IGEM) for the first time. Held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for four
days from Thursday, October 10 to Sunday, October 13, 2013, IGEM is one of the
largest environment- and energy-related general exhibitions in Southeast Asia.

We will exhibit panels of redox flow batteries (suited for effective use of
renewable energy), superconducting products, and other products including
wastewater treatment membrane modules. Our booths will also feature a video to
explain how concentrated photovoltaics (CPV), redox flow batteries, and the
energy management system (EMS) for controlling them help save electricity
consumption and cut CO[2] emissions at our Yokohama Works. We also demonstrate
a magnetic levitation mechanism by using superconducting coils.

[Main exhibits]

1. Superconducting products

Eco-friendly DI-BSCCO (bismuth-based superconducting wire of excellent
quality) and DI-BSCCO-based products (e.g., superconducting cables and
magnets) help improve energy efficiency.

2. POREFLON microfiltration membrane modules

POREFLON porous membrane was developed with our proprietary technologies using
PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) characterized by excellent chemical resistance,
heat resistance, and durability. Sumitomo Electric produces POREFLON
microfiltration membrane modules, filters comprising a large number of
membranes. Featuring high strength, washability with almost all acid and
alkali solvents, high water permeability, and ease of handling due to
hydrophilic treatment, the modules are applicable to various wastewater
treatment processes including that of wastewater with high oil content.

3. Smart energy system

Designed for large power consumers, this system consists of the world’s
largest redox flow batteries, Japan’s largest CPV equipment, and an EMS for
controlling them.
