Major nonwoven and engineered fabric companies are taking great leaps to improve their efforts in sustainability. From diapers to hospital wraps, and disinfecting wipes to coffee filters - nonwovens and engineered materials are part of our daily life. INDA is proud to share their successes in three categories: Sustainable innovation, making intentional changes to generate long-term social and environmental benefits, responsible sourcing; using materials that are primarily bio-based or from feedstocks drawing on regenerative, and/or sustainable agriculture principles to advance circularity, and responsible end-of-life solutions - incorporating materials that are either recyclable or biodegradable.

This new offering will support the reduction of climate impact through the use of Lyocell fibers with a net-zero footprint – and a recent study proved its high level of degradability in natural sea conditions.
