INDEX™20, Geneva A shared commitment to bringing circular materials and sustainable practices to the nonwovens industry, and a desire to differentiate positively in the single-use items market, brought together the innovative textile technology group Infinited Fiber Company and Suominen , the global market leader in nonwovens for wipes, to create a nonwoven sheet made 100% from regenerated textile waste.
Access to data in one place not only supports greater transparency allowing for more agile decision-making, but also reduces complexity and time for customers looking to streamline their machinery supply chain.
The nonwovens industry is ready for a more sustainable future: one that’s not reliant on virgin resources, where microplastic emissions are eliminated, and where disposable single-use items are biodegradable. At Infinited Fiber Company we are on a mission to use our fiber regeneration innovation to make this future a reality with our Infinna™ fiber, which looks and feels soft and natural like cotton – and is currently created 100% out of textile waste.
