Ahlstrom Filter Media Receives INDA's 2009 Visionary Award

Finland-based Ahlstrom Corp.'s Disruptor nanoalumina fiber and nonwoven water filter media received the 2009 Visionary Award, presented at the VISION 2009 Consumer Products Conference held last month in New Orleans and organized by the Cary, N.C.-based Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry (INDA). The annual Visionary Award recognizes innovative consumer end-products that incorporate nonwoven fabrics or use nonwoven technology during the manufacturing process.

The Disruptor - a nonwoven, wet-laid filter media constructed using nanoalumina fiber technology - is used by companies that manufacture water purification products such as tap, spa and shower filters; pre-filters; home reverse-osmosis filters, water pitchers and water coolers. The product was one of five finalists chosen from products nominated late last year.

"The depth and breadth of the five Visionary Award finalists at VISION 2009 illustrate just how important the marriage of nonwovens and consumer products has become," said Rory Holmes, president, INDA. "The Disruptor filtration demonstration was quite compelling and showed just how effective the technology is for removing particles as well as color contaminants from drinking water."

The four other finalists include: Menifee, Calif.-based Back Enterprises LLC's Germy Wormy sanitary sleeve; Dallas-based Kimberly-Clark Corp.'s GoodNites sleep boxer for boys and sleep shorts for girls; Chula Vista, Calif.-based Rotano International LLC's Nooby's disposable dog booties; and Richmond, Va.-based WearOnce.com and Tredegar Consumer Designs Inc.'s Once Single-Use Panty.
