The demand for nonwoven and other industrial and functional fabrics is on the rise in Russia as well as the CIS countries and as per an EDENA report, Russia accounts for 10 percent of exports of roll goods from the 27 countries compromising the European Union.

Pierre Wiertz, General Manager of EDANA, which is an international association serving the nonwovens and related industries was on a working visit to Russia to further increase the gamut of involvement in support of the development of nonwoven and related industries.

Mr Weirtz said, “Russia has felt the effects of the global downturn and as per a report, while the economy could return to modest growth in 2010, it is likely to continue to be difficult over the next 18 months”.

“The fact that these meetings came in difficult times, where Russia, like the rest of the world, is hoping to recover as soon as possible, was particularly appreciated by those companies and organizations I met”, said Mr Wiertz.

Future priorities that were highlighted at the meeting held with stake holders from the industry included; inventory of standards and regulations, comparison with EU and international requirements, and where appropriate, harmonization and lobbying.

Other initiatives discussed were conducting EDANA training courses in at least two Russian locations—Moscow and St. Petersburg; promotion and networking activities; engaging Russian representatives at scheduled European seminars.

According to statistics, nonwovens production in Russia revived in 1999, with mainly geo-textile roll goods being manufactured on needle-punched and spun-bond technology. The sector has also received investments in PP spun-bond, dry-laid and spun-laced lines.

These investments mainly were meant to fulfill the needs of the hygiene and wipes segments. In 2008, Russian nonwovens production was around 45,000 tons. New facilities opened this year and several important projects are also planned to come on-stream in the near future.

In 2008, 25,000 tons of roll goods, of which 70 percent were spun-melt materials and 103,650 tons of absorbent hygiene products, were exported from the EU to Russia, representing more than 10 percent and one third, respectively of EU27 overall exports from the sector.
