Together with its sister companies from Indorama Ventures Limited (IVL) – who will be presenting biodegradation capable polyolefin and polyester fibres – Avgol will discuss with visitors how specific products can help businesses achieve their 2030 sustainability goals, the company said in a press release.
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to talk to regional customers, vendors and other industry leaders at the world’s preeminent event for nonwovens and engineered fabrics. It is vitally important that we can engage with customers and gain additional insight into their own desired approaches to meeting sustainability objectives and show the synergy with our own technologies, logistics and production achievements,” Nick Carter, vice president of the nonwoven business unit, said in a statement.
“This is a fast-changing market right now, and with the impact of new legislation, raw material availability, evolving customer requirements and consumer interest, IDEA22 gives us the ideal opportunity to discuss these challenges in person. We will present a holistic approach to sustainability with everything from our biodegradation technology and the use of more natural components, to introducing new materials with improved carbon footprint and recyclability,” he added.
“At IDEA, we will not only be able to discuss our current and coming developments face-to-face, but will also outline our Innovation strategy addressing the degradation performance of our products, and the path forward for the industry in terms of the use of new bio-colorants, biosurfactants and other new technologies,” Carter said.
“We are looking forward to discussing the global challenge of eliminating incineration, chemical treatment, landfill, dumping and, in particular, fugitive material pollution from nonwoven products. More importantly, we will demonstrate how we can meet these needs while continuing to deliver nonwoven fabric solutions with the performance and quality characteristics customers demand,” he said.
