Environmental news and technical  innovation in the nonwovens sector

BRUSSELS –EDANA has announced a comprehensive programme for the upcoming International Nonwovens Symposium, which will be held in Lyon, France, on 8-9 June 2022.

At the event, 26 speakers will share their expertise covering a range of nonwovens topics across all type of applications with a predominant emphasis on sustainability and how nonwovens contribute to a better world.

The programme will kick off with a keynote speech by European Bioplastics’ Vice-Chair, Mariagiovanna Vetere. “Producers of all nonwoven applications are looking for more sustainable solutions: Through improved production, product design, and innovative materials. European Bioplastics is glad to be able to contribute to enhancing the sustainability profile of nonwovens,” said Mariagiovanna Vetere.

The outlook on the bioplastic market data is followed by a session on sustainability, including sustainable design of absorbent hygiene products. Continuing on raw materials, the Symposium will feature innovations such as antimicrobial polymers, new latex binders, bast fibres and PHA.

Our second keynote will open day 2: Carsten Beck, Director of Research & Futurist at the Copenhagen Institute for Future Studies. He will shed light on how consumers are shaping the future: “Global consumer trends revolving around sustainability and health are increasing in importance," he said. "As we look towards the next ten years, behavioural changes as well as technological developments will allow consumers to implement health and sustainability as key parameters in their consumption and customer journey. Increased transparency and the fight to gain trust will be equally important components in attracting the consumer of the future.”

This will set the scene for a session covering nonwovens for a better world: Nonwovens applications for batteries, oil absorbency and biofouling prevention. Machinery developments will close the programme with innovations covering online measurements, hydrocharging equipment, optical surface inspection and in-line wire belt cleaning.

In addition to the high-level technical content, the Symposium will also feature a tabletop exhibition organised, which will present a great opportunity for participants to extend their network and develop business contacts.
