The Austria-based technology group, Andritz, will be presenting its innovative nonwovens production solutions for wipe applications at the international World of Wipes (WOW) 2022 conference in Chicago, US, from June 27 -29, 2022.

The company offers various nonwoven processes to produce wipes, for example spunlace, wetlace and wetlace CP. Andritz aims to reduce or eliminate plastic components in a move towards sustainability. This applies to all types of sustainable wipes, such as flushable, biodegradable, bio-sourced, carded-pulp or standard carded wipes.

Indeed, hydroentanglement has the advantage of being able to bond any kind of fibres without the use of chemical binders or thermal fusion. It is, therefore, the most suitable bonding process for natural fibres, such as pulp, cotton, hemp, linen, flax, bamboo, and more. The latest development in this field is the Andritz neXline wetlace CP line, which integrates the card-pulp (CP) process. This is a fully engineered production line combining the benefits of drylaid and wetlaid technologies to produce a new generation of biodegradable wipes.

Andritz has become a member of the board of the Responsible Flushing Alliance (RFA) in the US. The RFA is an independent, non-profit trade association committed to educating consumers in responsible and smart flushing habits to help reduce damage to the nation's sewage systems.
