Topics of the workshop are to give an overview from process basics to latest developments and to inform about applications and which technological steps are required to fulfil market requirements, with a special focus on the Indian market. Instructors will guide participants on their way, starting at the point where a general decision about applicability of a nonwoven is to be made; introducing the technological principles of spunlaid and meltblown, various methods of fiber consolidation and ending with a good sense for what the most promising path is. The workshop will contain interactive elements, helping the participants to enhance their abilities to select the right technologies for their particular needs.
