EDANA's INDEX 08 Awards are the highest accolade for the best examples of excellence in our industry and highlight some of the innovations from businesses of all sizes, from all parts of the nonwovens supply chain.

Five Awards, covering everything from product and process innovations to marketing brilliance, were presented to the winning companies, selected from amongst the nominees, during a special ceremony at 11.30 on Tuesday, 15th April – the first day of the INDEX 08 exhibition.

The INDEX awards jury, which was compiled of former company marketing and R&D experts, the media, and academics, met at the end of January in order to select the nominees and the winners, which remained undisclosed until.

Due to the high number and quality of entries, the jury were hard pressed to filter down the number of nominees to a maximum of only three per category and to select the final winners, who are as follows:.

1. Nonwoven roll goods
THE WINNER: Ahlstrom for Ahlstrom Disruptor Technology
Nanofibre based filter media acting through the combination of two mechanisms: electrokinetics and mechanical entrapment
- Low pressure drop

Companies also nominated in this category: E.I. DuPont de Nemours and Company – Hybrid Membrane Technology
Freudenberg - TAU

2. Finished products made from, or incorporating nonwovens
THE WINNER: Johnson & Johnson GmbH for Johnson's Baby Extracare wipes
