The 2023 World of Wipes Innovation Award was presented to Indorama Ventures and Polymateria for their Nonwoven Wipe Using Biotransformation Technology.

This innovative 100% polypropylene spunlace wipe utilises advanced biotransformation technology, meeting the BSI PAS 9017 specification.

The wipe is compatible with mechanical recycling however, in the event it becomes fugitive, and exposed to heat, sunlight, air and moisture, will transform into a harmless, bioavailable wax at its end-of-life, returning safely to nature without leaving behind microplastics or toxins.

This polypropylene wipe represents a significant leap towards eco-friendly, sustainable nonwoven hygiene products.
