A 2-day conference to learn about market trends in the filtration industry, innovative filter materials, new developments in media design, air/liquid filtration, automotive filtration, testing and standardisation.
In parallel with the conference, a tabletop exhibition is organised to facilitate networking between campanies representatives and participants
The FILTREX™ Innovation Award competition is organised within the framework of the FILTREX™ conference and is part of EDANA's broader effort to support and celebrate innovation within the nonwoven and related industry.
This reward recognizes the efforts of all manufacturers of nonwoven based filtration products/éléments and celebrate their continuous efforts for excellence.
Any company who designs or manufactures nonwoven related filtration products, or components of these, is eligible to enter the competition. During the conference, shortlisted companies will be given time to present their innovation to delegates. The winning company will be selected by the audience.
“A very good collaborative interaction between partners throughout the supply chain”
Bill Adams, Director Sustainability and Technology, Canfor Pulp
“Great networking, ample time to meet the ‘movers and shakers’ in filtration”
Duncan Gunn, Development Coordinator, Don & Low
This will be the third edtion of the FILTREX™ INNOVATION AWARD, recognizing the efforts of all manufacturers of nonwoven based filtration products/elements and celebrates their continuous efforts for excellence and innovation.

The 2019 FILTREX™ Innovation Award, the only award recognizing innovation in the filtration industry, was attributed by delegate’s vote to Math2Market for their GeoDict software.
Math2Market GmbH was honoured for their innovative and easy-to-use FiberFind-AI module of Geodict software. GeoDict is claimed to be the most complete solution for multi-scale 3D image processing, material modelling, simulation and optimization. The FiberFind-AI module uses modelled nonwoven microstructures to train neural networks to label binders and fibers with artificial 3-D scans. After training, the neural network also recognizes the binders and fibers in 3-D scans of real nonwovens. Read more
“On behalf of Math2Market, it is a great honour to win the FILTREX™ Innovation Award 2019 in Berlin. This will motivate us to bring more and more innovative and practical features into our scientific software GeoDict. Many thanks to EDANA team for their great and professional organization of the FILTREX™ conference. A great place to learn and network”
