RALEIGH, N.C. — August 24, 2010 — North Carolina State University’s Nonwoven Institute (NWI) and
Elmarco are bringing together world leaders in nanofibers to discuss the state of fiber formation
as a science and cornerstone for new nonwovens and technical-textile enabled products.
Nanofibers for the 3rd Millennium (N3M) will be held Aug. 30 – Sept. 1 at the Marriott in downtown
Media wishing to attend the N3M conference are invited to do so. Keynote presentations will
take place on Aug. 30 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and two concurrent nanofiber sessions will run from 8
a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Aug. 31st and Sept. 1st.
Now in its third year, the past two events for the N3M conference were held in Prague, Czech
Republic, near the headquarters of Elmarco. Moving the conference from Prague to Raleigh may seem
like a big shift in venue, but it is a regular trip for the conference’s corporate partner,
Elmarco. Elmarco is the first producer of industrial scale electrospinning equipment; the process
most commonly used to make nanofibers. Elmarco opened its U.S. offices on NC State’s Centennial
Campus in early 2008, and now has a facility in Morrisville, near RDU Airport.
Over two and a half days, presenters will cover areas of fine fiber formation, measurement
and testing. They’ll also discuss all of the application areas that are using nanofibers for their
next generation of products, from wound care to fuel filtration. The highlight of the conference
will be the unveiling of Elmarco, Inc.’s North American demonstration facility. Registered
attendees will be able to see the first multi-electrode free surface electrospinning demonstration
in North America.
