Ahlstrom, a leader in high performance fiber-based materials, received an award recognizing the breakthrough innovation of its Disruptor filtration technology at the world's leading nonwovens exhibition INDEX held in Switzerland on April 15-18, 2008.

Every three years, the European Nonwovens Association EDANA acknowledges the industry's best examples of excellence and innovation in the whole supply chain at the INDEX exhibition.

INDEX is the largest global gathering of the nonwovens industry. The five awards presented at the exhibition cover a wide variety from product and process innovations to marketing brilliance.

Ahlstrom received the award in the Nonwovens Roll Good category, recognizing the advances Disruptor nonwoven technology brings to nearly every segment of the water filtration industry.

Disruptor technology utilizes nanoalumina fibers having a positive electrokinetic potential that enables a nonwoven media capable of filtration efficiency equivalent to that of polymeric membranes, but without sacrificing pressure drop, flow rate or loading capacity.

Disruptor can be used in a wide range of water filtration applications, including beverage manufacture, pharmaceutical make up water, point of use and point of entry filters, boiler and chiller water as well as prefiltration to reverse osmosis membranes.

"We at Ahlstrom gratefully accept this award as acknowledgement by the nonwovens community of the benefitsDisruptor technology can provide to people and the environment, through low cost purification of drinking water and waste water streams", says Rod Komlenic, Vice President, Filtration Business Development.
