The 3 finalists of the RISE Innovation Award from the Association of the Nonwovens Fabrics Industry, INDA, Cary, NC/USA, will present their innovative material science solutions during the 10th edition of the Research, Innovation & Science for Engineered Fabrics Conference to be held completely virtually on September 29 - October 1, 2020.
The award recognizes novel innovations within and on the periphery of the nonwovens industry that creatively use next-level science and engineering principles to solve material challenges and expand the usage of nonwovens and engineered fabrics.
The finalists of 2020 RISE Innovation Awards are:
• FemTech at MAS Holdings Pvt. Ltd. - Leakproof Absorbent Nursing Pads. Pregnant women needed a better solution for managing breast milk leaks. FemTech nursing pads absorb 30 ml of fluid leaving the consumer feeling dry and confident,
• Pedilay Care GmbH - Pedilay med. This is a ready-to-use foot bandage that encloses the foot up to the ankle and supports medical treatments. It saves valuable care time, since the bandage can be put on or taken off very gently within a few seconds,
• The Nonwovens Institute - Spunbond High Efficiency Filter. A completely new approach to creating filtration media with the right efficiency at low pressure drop at a throughput of 350 kg/m/h. The pressure drop with this new filter is unmatched by any meltblown structure and does not require electrostatic charging.
The 3 finalists were selected by technical experts on INDA’s Technical Advisory Board.
