At the recent International Nonwovens Technical Conference (INTC), September 8-11 in Houston, co-sponsored by INDA and TAPPI, a number of special awards were presented to industry and academia professionals for their service to the industry. Among them:

Roy Broughton of Auburn University received the 2008 TAPPI Nonwovens Division Leadership and Service Award and Rohm and Haas prize. Dr. Broughton was recognized for outstanding leadership and exceptional service, which have resulted in significant and demonstrable benefits to the division's members. He is a full professor of textile engineering at Auburn University.

Behnam Pourdeyhimi, Nonwovens Institute director and NCSU professor, received the TAPPI Nonwovens Division 2008 Technical Award and Mark Hollingsworth Prize in the amount of $1000. This award recognizes outstanding accomplishments that have advanced the industry's technology in the field of nonwovens.

The eighth annual INDA Award for Lifetime Technical Achievement was to Fiberweb's David Newkirk and Larry Wadsworth of U.S. Pacific Co. These awards are presented to individuals who have a long and established technical career in the nonwovens industry.

Both recipients have a long history of technical innovation leading to the development of intellectual property resulting in new products and processes. These developments have added substantial fiscal value to nonwovens companies and the industry as a whole.

Shreya Paul of North Carolina State University won the graduate research award for the presentation, "Polar Polypropylene Nonwovens to Improve Adhesion to Elastomers."

Other contenders for this honor included Reza Badrossamy, University of California, for "Biocidal Acyclic N-halamine Polypropylene Polymer and Fibers for Nonwoven Applications,” and “Fabrication and Characterization of Fibrous Activated Carbon from Cotton Nonwoven,” presented by Nan Jiang of Louisiana State University.
