The event will take place from 14-15 September 2016 in New Delhi, EDANA, the international association representing nonwovens and related materials reports.

“Building on the success and market support of the concept of FILTREX conference series, with more than 1,600 attendees in Europe, Asia and the Indian Subcontinent over the past 12 years, EDANA organises such events on an on-going basis across Europe and Asia, with now a separate edition for India alone, whose market justifies a dedicated conference,” said Pierre Wiertz, General Manager at EDANA.

Growing filtration market

Ritika Gupta, Executive Director of BCH & Editor - TechTex India, said in her paper in the market outlook session of the FILTREX Asia 2013 Seoul conference: “Like a number of Asian countries, India has a fast growing filtration market, although the current technology is not totally at the same level as compared to other major markets.

“The need for transition is well recognised and we expect significant investments in the coming years, most notably in nonwovens”.

Building on the success of the previous editions, EDANA and BCH invite papers for FILTREX Asia 2016 on the following topics:

  • New filter media technologies
  • Automotive filtration
  • Air filtration
  • Liquid filtration
  • Gas filtration
  • Water treatment
  • Emission – air pollution control/ legislation
  • CO2 emissions
  • Market Trends

Abstracts should be sent to [email protected] before 5 May 2016.


EDANA serves more than 240 companies across 36 countries in the nonwovens and related industries, helping its members to design their future. The Association’s mission is to create the foundation for sustainable growth of the nonwovens and related industries through active promotion, education and dialogue.
