TAPPI's NET (Nonwovens Engineers & Technologists) Division is pleased to announce that it is planning a 2010 Nonwovens Technical Conference for this fall.

The conference will provide updates on current challenges and cutting-edge solutions for the nonwovens industry. Last year, leading experts from the nonwovens field addressed hot topics such as sustainability and “green” concerns, advanced binders and additives, and new technologies affecting the industry. Additional details on this year's program will be announced later this spring.

“Technical Association of the Pulp and Paper Industry (TAPPI) and the members of NET are excited to expand our commitment to the nonwovens industry by organizing this conference,” said TAPPI's President and CEO Larry N. Montague said. “By providing attendees with access to important technical knowledge and a network of people who can leverage that knowledge, TAPPI's 2010 Nonwovens Technical Conference will advance the science and its application within this dynamic field. This event is a critical gathering for those dedicated to broadening their knowledge of nonwovens technology.”

Operating as a division of TAPPI, NET is the only professional society in the nonwovens industry NET and is the international association home for nonwovens experts from diverse markets and disciplines. Members include technical directors,engineers, professors, research and development managers, sales and marketing professionals, and corporate management. These members work collaboratively in volunteer groups to share knowledge with peers throughout the world in all segments of the nonwovens industry – from hygiene and fabrics to filtration, insulation and more.

NET is led by Division Chair Behnam Pourdeyhimi, who is Associate Dean for Industry Research & Extension, William A. Klopman Distinguished Professor and Executive Director of The Nonwovens Institute for North Carolina State University. “Technical societies such as TAPPI's NET Division provide a great service to the industry and return in spades actionable ideas to the individuals who volunteer, “ said Pourdeyhimi. “TAPPI's 2010 Nonwovens Technical Conference provides an exciting opportunity for NET to further nonwovens science and manufacturing applications through peer-reviewed papers and collaborative activities among organizers and attendees.”
