February 25, 2015 9:30 am EST (US) EDANA and its members have a vested interest in making the most efficient use of energy and raw materials, and in this, the Association’s 4th Sustainability Report, it addresses every aspect for the nonwovens and related industries with regard to the social, environmental and economic aspects of sustainability. In everyday life, people are very likely to come into contact with nonwovens. Sustainability is a continuous process, and our industry has delivered many solutions to make our products and processes more efficient. Nonwovens can also be used as more efficient alternatives to other, more traditional woven materials.
We believe that sustainability is a driving force for innovation, especially when the three pillars of social, environmental and economic impacts are fully considered. Innovation may be driven by a desire to find or utilise resources, reduce waste, and to ensure better lives, a healthy planet and a healthy economy for current and future generations. Nonwovens play a major part in our everyday lives, so it's only natural that our challenge continues to be finding new and innovative ways to address society’s needs – today and tomorrow.

Hospital Acquired Infection: It’s Serious Business

Disposable Medical Products and the HAI Challenge May 22, 2014 10:30 am EST (US)/15:30 GMT
Expert consensus points to the presence of dangerous pathogens in the hospital environment as a major cause of hospital acquired infection. Most deaths related to antibiotic resistance happen in healthcare settings such as hospitals and nursing homes. As these institutions become superbug seedbeds only persistent and dedicated hospital hygiene can save them from significant liability. This depends on the timely spread of disposable hygiene and hygienically optimized products at the point of attack.
