INDA will present the Award at Hygienix 2017, which will take place from 6-9 November at the Renaissance Austin Hotel, in Austin, TX. Nominations may be accepted online by Monday, 17 July. Nominees will be selected from a broad range of new products or technologies that have been commercially available at most two years prior to Hygienix 2017. Nominees can include end product components, fabrication techniques, or products that use a nonwoven technology in manufacturing. 

Specific Award categories include feminine hygiene products, diapers, incontinence products, raw materials, equipment technology, reusable products or technologies, and composites or laminates that use nonwovens. Three finalists will present their innovations to participants at Hygienix, the premier event for the absorbent hygiene and personal care markets. The winner will be announced on 9 November.

Last year’s Hygienix Innovation Award was presented to Sustainable Health Enterprises (SHE) for their Go! Pads, a banana fibre-based, low-cost feminine pad that sustainably delivers affordable and much needed hygiene for women and girls in Rwanda.

The 2016 event in Orlando, FL, drew more than 525 industry professionals to advance their business with the newest and latest developments in the important, growing, and largest of the nonwovens segment—absorbent hygiene and personal care. Participants gained competitive market and business insights, as well as the critical face-to-face engagement over 14 hours of networking events.

The Hygienix 2017 Conference will explore compelling content in these relevant areas: Adult Incontinence, Smart Hygiene, Feminine Hygiene, Market Drivers, IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things), Material Advances, Odor Control, Testing, Skin Health, Antimicrobials, and Biobased SAP.

The event will also feature Dinner with Industry Thought Leaders, where participants dine in small groups with their selected speaker of choice; networking opportunities to connect with other participants; and tabletop displays with two evening receptions.
