September 10, 2008

Lifetime awards honor well known industry veterans.

The eighth annual INDA Award for Lifetime Technical Achievement was presented at INTC Tuesday, September 9 to Fiberweb's David Newkirk and Larry Wadsworth of U.S. Pacific Co. These awards are presented to individuals who have a long and established technical career in the nonwovens industry. Both recipients have a long history of technical innovation leading to the development of intellectual property resulting in new products and processes. These developments have added substantial fiscal value to nonwovens companies and the industry as a whole.

Also presented at INTC was the INDA Lifetime Service Award to Roy Broughton of Auburn University. This award recognizes individuals who have a long-established record of service to INDA, specifically and the nonwovens industry as a whole.

Other contenders for this honor included Reza Badrossamy, University of California, for "Biocidal Acyclic N-halamine Polypropylene Polymer and Fibers for Nonwoven Applications,” and “Fabrication and Characterization of Fibrous Activated Carbon from Cotton Nonwoven,” presented by Nan Jiang of Louisiana State University.
