INDEX Awards Announced

Awards were presented for innovation in five categories during the INDEX 08 nonwovens exhibition sponsored by Brussels-based EDANA, the International Association Serving the Nonwovens and Related Industries, and held last month in Geneva.

Finland-based Ahlstrom Corp. won the nonwoven roll goods award for its Ahlstrom Disruptor™ Technology for nanofiber-based filter media acting through the combination of electrokinetics and mechanical entrapment. The award for finished products made from or incorporating nonwovens went to Germany-based Johnson & Johnson GmbH for Johnson’s Baby Extracare cleansing and moisturizing wipes. The award for marketing achievement for the most original marketing campaign for a product made from or incorporating nonwovens was presented to Germany-based J.H. Ziegler GmbH & Co. KG for the Zinno campaign, which included an animated short movie that combined the company logo with product features and also presented the company philosophy. ExxonMobil Chemical, Houston, won the raw materials or component innovations award for its Vistamaxx™ 2125 melt-spinnable elastomer, which exhibits high elasticity and can be processed using conventional machinery. Andritz Küsters GmbH, Germany, received the award for innovation in machinery of special relevance to the nonwovens industry for its neXdetect measuring system for detecting invisible chemical applications on nonwovens.
