First edition of Nonwovens Circular Forum closes to great aclaim

With over 100 delegates from across the nonwovens and related industries in attendance, the first edition of EDANA’s new Circular Nonwovens Forum successfully created a new platform for discussion on sustainability and circularity within the nonwovens sector. 

Nonwoven manufacturers, their suppliers and converters are increasingly focused on finding circular economy solutions and this gathering was established to explore this trend in depth with key technical actors, business leaders and decision makers. The forum opened with a keynote speech from Paola Migliorini, the Deputy Head of Unit for Sustainable Production, Products & Consumption on the European Commission’s new Circular Economy Action plan. It was followed by a range of insightful presentations and discussions covering initiatives to address the circularity of AHP plastic waste, the biodegradability and compostability of nonwovens, material innovations, and developments in renewable polypropylene.
