BANGKOK — October 18, 2021 — Avgol®, an Indorama Ventures company and manufacturer of high performance nonwoven fabric solutions, will be showcasing its latest work in biotransformation technology for polyolefin fibers and nonwoven fabrics at this year’s Index™ 20 exhibition.
Located on Booth 2119, Avgol will be discussing the global challenge of eliminating incineration, landfill, dumping and, in particular, fugitive material pollution from non-woven products.
Nick Carter, vice president, Nonwovens Marketing at Avgol, comments: “Working with our sister companies in Indorama, we have established our vision of innovating together for circular evolution. Our first major project is now addressing the need to achieve full biodegradation of our materials to help solve the issue of waste plastics that find their way into the environment.
“At Index 20, we will be sharing insight to our research and development 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 new technologies. Of course, we will be demonstrating our latest Forward Innovative Thinking (FIT™) range of hygiene materials too, including natureFIT™.”
natureFIT™ is the newest innovation in the Avgol technology platform designed to imbue nonwoven fabrics with additional qualities and benefits that anticipate the shifting demands of the consumer-led retail space. The suite of fabric solutions is focused on replacing elements of spun melt fabric design, where possible, with natural alternatives. The advanced technology affords product designers a significant reduction in polymer consumption to reduce environmental impact while simultaneously enhancing softness and conformability.
