More sustainability in the production of nonwovens

The journey for more sustainability has been underway for a long time, and ANDRITZ Nonwoven already offers a variety of solutions for its customers today

ANDRITZ is a reliable technology and development partner when it comes to the further development of nonwoven products in the direction of greater sustainability, and we support our partners in their projects towards greater environmental compatibility, biodegradable products, savings in process energy, and the use of recycled materials.

Seeing the signs of the times

As was recently visible at INDEX23, sustainability is one of the central topics of the nonwovens industry.

For many years now, ANDRITZ has offered different nonwoven processes for biodegradable wipes, like spunlace, Wetlace and Wetlace CP, with one goal in mind: reduction and elimination of plastic components while maintaining the high quality of the desired product properties. The latest development in this field is the ANDRITZ neXline wetlace CP line.

This idea for more resource savings is also implemented technologically, as by ANDRITZ ProWin™ for durable nonwovens.

More to come

But it goes even further: ANDRITZ is working on projects in the field of its hygiene converting lines and spunlace technology, for example, such as bio-based concept baby diaper for a significant reduction of plastic components in hygiene articles.

And, of course, ANDRITZ offers numerous approaches in the field of textile recycling for the reasonable reuse of valuable raw materials, whether for airlay, needlepunch, spunlace, or wetlace producers.

ANDRITZ has certified its own product lines and equipment according to its own label for ESG.

Only those machines and complete lines that can significantly contribute to more sustainability receive this label. This can mean that very specific environmentally compatible products, such as bio-wipes, can be produced with this technology, or that this technology saves resources in the production process.
