As sustainability and circularity are increasingly orienting the way forward around the nonwovens industry, young talents are seeking to develop new products. As an international event where the complete nonwovens and related products value chain converges, the Index23 is set to provide a range of solutions to the ongoing challenges faced by the nonwovens industry. Visitors from around the globe will gather from April 18-21, 2023, in Geneva/Switzerland, for the triennial exhibition.
With the current energy crisis and supply chain issues still to be resolved, Index23 – with 550 exhibitors who have booked so far – will clarify industry issues covering the entire nonwovens' supply chain.
»A great opportunity to find answers for challenges such as energy efficiency, and to understand how nonwovens can contribute to the solutions.«
