EDANA (European Disposables and Nonwovens Association), in co-operation with BCH (Business Co-ordination House), is organizing two nonwovens and absorbent hygiene product training courses for the second time in India in December.
Slated for the week of December 1, 2007 in New Delhi, these two-day training courses are designed to provide a unique opportunity for India’s newcomers to the industry, to quickly gain a complete understanding of the various technologies, processes, raw materials and market aspects of nonwovens and absorbent hygiene products.
According to EDANA, with a population of more than a billion people—of which 300 million-plus are middle class with high living standards and purchasing power—the potential for nonwovens products, such as feminine hygiene products, consumer wipes, diapers and other disposables, in India is huge. There has already been growth in nonwovens applications such as automotive, interlinings, agriculture and medical. Nonwoven geotextiles, in particular, are expected to grow rapidly as more than 10,000 kilometers of coastal roads are planned for the next five years. In addition, the Indian government is undertaking a project to connect all the rivers in the country, making it the largest water project in the world.
