New Technologies for Old Problems – How to Improve Sustainability in Polypropylene Disposable Hygien

New Technologies for Old Problems – How to Improve Sustainability in Polypropylene Disposable Hygien

04.05.22

Sustainability is a key global issue for the future.  This issue especially affects the hygiene product market where the focus is on disposable absorbent articles. In this webinar, we are presenting the latest innovations in sustainable component material development from the companies Binder and Avgol.  We shall use the example of a baby diaper as a focal point for how our innovations can be practically employed in your product designs. The technologies used are based on the Biotransformation technology, which makes it possible to achieve more sustainable polypropylene products through support for recycling as well as providing an alternate route for non-recyclable/fugitive waste management.

 

Binder

From a local ribbon manufacturer to a global technology leader in high-tech fastener systems: as a family-run, globally successful company, Binder Group offers technical fastening solutions for a wide range of industries. To build on our innovative edge, we place considerable emphasis on research and development as well as on collaborations with leading research institutes and universities. The result of this is numerous patents and new products of uncompromising quality and maximum reliability – properties that all our products have in common.

 

 

Avgol 

Since 1988, Avgol – an Indorama Ventures Limited company - has led the global hygiene market with the most comprehensive range of ultra-lightweight nonwoven fabrics for the baby diaper, adult incontinence, and feminine hygiene markets.  We are committed to developing innovative solutions to help customers achieve their own sustainability goals while meeting all their performance needs.

Exploring Environmental & Economic Sustainability for the AHPs Industry

Exploring Environmental & Economic Sustainability for the AHPs Industry

02.23.22 - 02.23.23

  •  
  • Having a strong strategy on sustainability is essential to the long-term viability of any business, especially in an industry like absorbent hygiene products.  For the AHPs industry, long-term sustainability thinking requires thinking about the entire life-cycle of our products: which means designing with sustainable sourcing, production, and end-of-life scenarios in mind.  
  • The infrastructure challenge for AHPs is the waste management infrastructure. Companies in this industry need to design with waste management scenarios in mind; and this includes recycling, composting, and when products end up as fugitive waste in the environment. Just like auto companies have been, AHPs companies need to be more involved than ever before in helping to bring about the waste management infrastructure that the sustainability of their products require.

NOW AVAILABLE ON-DEMAND

As consumers seek a more diverse range of products that they can not only rely on, but that suit their lifestyle choices, the absorbent hygiene sector has begun to witness a move away from the dependence on single-use disposables. Finding a product that is suitable for multi-use but that offers the performance and reliability of the more common disposable options is the aspiration of many.

At Technical Absorbents we are focused on creating fabrics that are not only superabsorbent, but engineered to meet specific application requirements. This webinar will focus on the reusable solutions we have developed with the absorbent hygiene industry in mind. Our portfolio of discreet, high performing fabrics – containing our Super Absorbent Fibre (SAFTM) – are both superabsorbent and capable of being washed and dried multiple times. This makes them perfect as the absorbent core in reusable feminine hygiene and light incontinence applications. We will also take a look at some of our latest disposable options.

Avoiding microbial contamination and adequate preservation are a key to product safety. The high microbiological risk of wet wipes is due to the unique product characteristics which contains both formula & fabric. adding to the difficulty are in-use habits, consumer ingredient's safety concerns and marketing claims: a strong trend of “free-from”, which are limiting the choice of ingredients and preservation systems. 

The webinar will discuss new findings on the microbial risk of wet wipes relating to various fabric compositions, and impact of formulation, and finally, offer new solutions to overcome those obstacles: 

SharoWIPES™ line was created following an in-depth research to answer the industry needs. It offers a technological breakthrough by providing a solution which protects both the formula and the non-woven, with a unique anti-biofilm mechanism. 

The systems demonstrate high efficacy broad spectrum protection at surprisingly low level of use.

* Clean Label: Similar to nature & FREE FROM phenoxyethanol. 
* Safety first: Clinically tested for baby care and sensitive areas 
* ECO friendly: Readily biodegradable, Vegan
