CHARLOTTE - Nonwovens fabric manufacturer Glatfelter has been nominated as a finalist for the 2023 Hygienix Innovation Award for its GlatPure technology, a full range of bio-based absorbent hygiene components derived from renewable materials.
This prestigious award recognises and rewards a company that utilises and demonstrates innovation in the hygiene market.
The absorbent hygiene products consist of a variety of plant-based and natural topsheets, an acquisition distribution layer, an absorbent core, a newly improved backsheet, and a landing zone.
Crafted with 100% renewable fibres and biodegradable materials, and enriched with bio-based binders, GlatPure is described by the company as the industry’s first fully functional, fossil fuel-free range of solutions.
“The GlatPure range stands as a testament to our unwavering commitment to delivering top-tier performance and sustainability in absorbent hygiene products,” said Vishal Bansal, vice president of global innovation, ESG, and product sustainability. “Understanding that each component plays an important role in product excellence, we have tailored every layer to ensure they more than meet their required attributes in the application. To achieve this, we harnessed the power of multiple advanced technologies, carefully selected for their unique advantages.”
Glatfelter will be presenting its innovations at Hygienix, the key event for absorbent hygiene and personal care markets, which takes place from November 13 to 16, 2023, in New Orleans, LA.
