Environmental news and technical  innovation in the nonwovens sector

BRUSSELS – The 50th anniversary of EDANA – the European Disposables and Nonwovens Association – was celebrated at a special event on April 28th , a little belatedly due to Covid-19, since the organisation was actually founded in May 1971, by just 12 companies.

These initial companies were mainly involved in the provision of materials – unsophisticated by today’s standards – for geotextiles, insulating materials and coating substrates, as well as involving certain forward looking consumer-facing brands like Mölnlycke and Procter & Gamble. The growth of emerging major sectors such as absorbent hygienic disposables (AHPs), medical products, wipes, filter media and automotive components would subsequently follow.

EDANA has now grown to represent 330 companies covering the entire nonwovens supply chain – from raw materials and machinery suppliers to the brands providing end-use products to a varied array of consumer and industrial markets.
