International Nonwovens Symposium 2018 in Rome
From May 22-24, 2018 Edana hosted in Rome/Italy 215 participants from 144 companies across the supply chain in its International Nonwovens Symposium 2018 (INS). With a highly-praised table top display, and the traditional Edana walking dinner, the key stakeholders took advantage of the many networking opportunities, discussing the variety of presentations from “Industry 4.0” challenges and opportunities, to recycling, innovation and new filter media. With further presentations on environmental sustainability and bioplastic material innovation, the 2018 INS delivered on the objective to address the challenges and opportunities facing the industry.“Since Edana last held the INS in Rome 15 years ago, sustainability as a topic has evolved from a minor interest subject to take primacy on the agenda” said Pierre Wiertz, General Manager of Edana. “It is pleasing to hear of such positive feedback on the focus of our programme and encouraging to see industry leaders discuss and demonstrate innovations that will contribute to sustainable business practices and embark our sector in its transition towards a more circular economy”.
