EDANA’s INDEX 14 Awards are the highest accolade for the best examples of excellence in the nonwovens and related industry, and highlight some of the innovations from businesses of all sizes, and from all parts of the nonwovens supply chain.

The jury responsible for selecting candidate applications and which was comprised of an official from the European Commission, a former senior nonwovens company business development and marketing manager, a representative of the nonwovens industry trade press, and top academic nonwovens R&D experts, met in February in order to select the nominees. In granting the Award, the jury has commented that True Cotton Greige Cotton Nonwoven for Wound Healing and Hygienic Product Applications efficiently exploits the natural properties of cotton fibre, and is an effective alternative to bleached cotton.
