Quote from Dave Rousse, INDA President:

“While cognizant of the evolving COVID-19 situation, we are proceeding with plans for an exceptional event in late June including three strong contenders for this years' prestigious World of Wipes Innovation Award. We applaud the ingenuity and creativity shown by Berk International, LLC, Lonza, LLC, and ITW Pro Brands in advancing the wipes market sector.”

Cary (NC), USA, 2 April 2020 – INDA, the Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry, announced the three World of Wipes Innovation Award® finalists who will present their innovations at the 14th edition of the World of Wipes® (WOW) International Conference 2020, June 22-25, Minneapolis (MN), USA.

Alongside Lonza, LLC, the two other finalists for the World of Wipes Innovation Award are Berk International LLC and ITW Pro Brands. The selection for Lonza was for NUGEN® NR Disinfectant Wipe.

The NUGEN® NR Disinfectant Wipes* registration is designed to be a one-step no-rinse food contact surface disinfectant. It can clean and disinfect surfaces without detergent pre-clean or potable water-rinse requirements even on food contact surfaces. Also, the wipe kills a broad set of bacteria and viruses such as Norovirus – a key food safety gap not addressed by pre-saturated food contact surface sanitizing wipes.

The World of Wipes Innovation Award recognizes products or technology innovations within the entire wipes value chain that expand the use of nonwoven fabrics and demonstrate advancements in creativity, novelty of approach, uniqueness, and technical sophistication. The winner will be announced Thursday, 25 June 2020.

WOW 2020 will connect senior wipes professionals over four value-packed days combining relevant technical and educational content with business engagement opportunities. Session topics include buyer demographics, sustainability, industrial and flushable wipes, substrates, preservatives, and single-use plastics. Over 400 participants attended the World of Wipes International Conference event in 2019.
