INDA opens nominations for Hygienix Innovation Award

June 24, 2017 - United States Of America

INDA, the Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry, has announced that it is accepting nominations for the prestigious Hygienix Innovation Award. INDA will present the award at Hygienix 2017, to be held from November 6 to 9, 2017, at the Renaissance Austin Hotel, in Austin, Texas. Nominations will be accepted online by July 17, at INDA’s website.

The award recognises a new product or technology innovation in the absorbent hygiene and personal care industries that uses nonwoven fabrics in novel, technically sophisticated, uniquely creative, and expansive ways.

Nominees will be selected from a broad range of new products or technologies that have been commercially available at most two years prior to Hygienix 2017. Nominees can include end product components, fabrication techniques, or products that use a nonwoven technology in manufacturing.

Specific award categories include feminine hygiene products, diapers, incontinence products, raw materials, equipment technology, reusable products or technologies, and composites or laminates that use nonwovens.

Three finalists will present their innovations to participants at Hygienix, the premier event for the absorbent hygiene and personal care markets. The winner will be announced on November 9, 2017.

The Hygienix 2017 conference will explore compelling content in relevant areas that include adult incontinence, smart hygiene, feminine hygiene, market drivers, IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things), material advances, odour control, testing, skin health, antimicrobials, and bio-based SAP. (GK)
