A hot topic at the ninth World of Wipes® (WOW) International Conference — organized by the Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry (INDA), Cary, N.C., and held recently in Atlanta — was the flushability of nonwoven wipes. Other topics covered at the event included specialty materials, fragrances and wet wipe preservatives. WOW 2015 attracted more than 500 attendees, which was a record for the event.
“We are delighted with this year’s record attendance demonstrating the vibrancy and strength of this important nonwovens segment,” said Dave Rousse, president, INDA. “Both industry veterans and newcomers to WOW 2015 benefitted from the many networking opportunities, educational presentations and panel discussions on the very latest topics affecting the industry.”
