WHAT ABOUT THE FILTRATION INDUSTRY? 
Filter media, including all applications, are one of the fastest growing end-uses of nonwovens globally and in each continent (over 9% average annual growth both before and after the 2008 financial crisis).

Increasing awareness for individuals and for authorities of the need to control our immediate environment, be it at home, in the workplace or while travelling means that filters, especially those made with nonwoven components play an essential role in our everyday lives.  Helping to promote the benefits of and demand for nonwoven filter media across the globe is a key area of support that EDANA provides to the industry, and the FILTREX™ conference will provide manufacturers and companies along the supply chain with valuable insight and innovative ideas about their sector.
