20 January, 2012 – Meeting the ongoing demand for both quality information and case studies from across the globe, BCH and EDANA once again presented the Filtrex Asia Conference and Exhibition in New Delhi, India on the 6th and 7th December, 2011.

Sessions focused on new filter media technologies, market trends, air, liquid and automotive filtration, and the trends in testing and measurements.

In addition, the adjacent tabletop exhibition offered a unique business opportunity for participants to see displays from the leading filter media suppliers, testing and manufacturing equipment suppliers.

“What is particularly interesting in this second edition of FILTREX Asia, is the impressive presence of major filter makers form the whole Indian subcontinent, very eager to hear about latest developments in nonwoven filter media.” said Pierre Wiertz, General Manager of EDANA.

Thanks to increased industrial development in India and across Asia, filtration is seeing remarkable growth as the need for quality products and a cleaner environment has prompted inspired companies to bring both standard and state-of-the-art filtration solutions to the market. EDANA’s approach to product stewardship across its 40 years has supported the growth and development of filtration products, meeting a demand for strong reliable products which deliver a benefit to the quality of air or liquid in our homes, our offices and our cities.

In addition to the market and technical information provided through both the conference and exhibition, the event offered a number of dedicated times for business representatives to interact with each other, filling the critical requirement for individuals to make contact with valuable business partners, be they from across the Indian subcontinent, or from across the globe.

“India is a fast growing filtration market, although the current technology is not totally at the same level as compared to other major markets. The need for ‘transition’ is well recognized and we expect significant investments in the coming years, most notably in nonwovens.” said Ritika Gupta, Executive Director of BCH in her keynote paper from the conference.

The next Filtration Conference and Exhibition will be held by EDANA in Cologne, Germany on the 17th and 18th October. Details and registrations forms will be made available on www.edana.org under ‘Events’.
